An example of what is at stake in this election 


The Montana incest/rape victim did not receive justice because the minor child, violated by her own father, could not find anyone to speak in her favor. Not even her own mother, who pleaded the judge to have mercy on the rapist because his two sons needed him.To say that the judge gave the rapist a 60 days sentence because his misogyny, and the fact that he was moved by the sons need of their father were enough disregard the savagery of the crime and keep the daughter’s violator in the same house with her.

To say that the justice system needs the pleading of a victim for it to work is the textbook definition of discrimination and misogyny! That is why, until we have more women in the senate, on the Supreme Court, in cabinets and in the presidency, laws written by men will continue to serve men, or at least lack a woman’s perspective, the other half of our society, until now almost very silent, and after November 8, more and more vocal.

It is on each one of us Nasty Women to step up and get to the voting polls and #VOTE!! for #women, for #equality, for #justice, for the #LGBTQ community, for the #underdog, for the #environment, for our #children! #YallaVote, #ImWithHer, Hillary Clinton 2016 Hillary Clinton 1 Million Strong For Hillary Clinton in 2016 #NastyWomen #MadamPresident

Here is the feature in the #WashingtonPost about the stories of two teenage girls victims of rape and incest in Montana and California, USA.

Two fathers raped their daughters. One got 60 days in jail. The other? 1,503 years in prison.

Why Hillary’s win is important to girls, women around the world


Hillary-Historic-moment

Observing and talking to different people the past few days, I could not help this reflection: mothers and parents of girls are more likely to appreciate the historic moment of Hillary Clinton‘s nomination than mothers/parents of boys.
It seems that, mothers in particular, need to be reminded of all the things they were told they could not be, or do when they were girls. Boys were presidents, girls were mothers, teachers at most…

Girls “were told to not express their opinion too strongly — it’s not polite. To not challenge a man — it’s not ladylike”!

Wake up world, this woman made history for us. And yes it took a First Lady and a Senator and a Secretary of State, probably the most experienced politician who ever ran for president to clinch the nomination for The US presidency. Why? Because it’s a damn dysfunctional sick world that would not give the opportunity to women with less recognition or resume. A first term male senator is eligible to run but not a first term female… That’s why she was pulled away from her initial inspirational campaign message of equality to a more down-to-earth “I am experienced and qualified” kind of argument. Why? Because even her democratic opponent, yes the guy everybody is excited about his REVOLUTIONARY message, whether he was conscious of his misogyny or not, played the qualification argument against her.
Come on people! It’s perfectly normal to pull up the qualified argument against a woman but unthinkable to use it against of the 20 other candidates who ran for the nomination, which none of them match her experience. It’s ironic that out of all these candidates, only Carlie Fiorina, the other female candidate, faced the same kind of arguments. Telling, no?

She has always been a pioneer: for those who don’t remember, she went behind White House and State Department officials, changing her speech secretly at the last minute on her way to China and gave the landmark speech about Women’s Rights at the UN world conference on women in Beijing in 1995.
Her words: “women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights” scared officials back home. Yet she did not play it safe, she stood tall and made the case for women around the world. (See Full speech and video — http://tinyurl.com/ah9fx=:

Thank you ‪#‎HRC‬ for putting up with all the bullying and finally making history! Your words were spot on: it’s true that: “Tonight’s victory is not about one person. It belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible.”

Thank you #HRC, thank you ‪#‎DEMParty‬ and congratulations to ‪#‎America‬
