The Juliettes — Liz, Lissa, Eva and Julie — “a self-styled Pump Rock band from Seattle – fierce, foxy & fabulous,” they say in their Twitter profile, where they also posted this excellent image/manifesto.
Read it, share it. It’s time women –”the 52% majority,” as The Juliettes proclaim — were free.
I AM A WOMAN
And NO MAN, NO GROUP OF MEN, AND NO INSTITUTION OF MEN hold dominion over me, my mind, my body, my life, my choices, my vagina, or my uterus
If you attempt to restrict my access – or my sisters’ access – to health care or contraception, WE WILL FIGHT YOU AND WE WILL WIN
Do not fool yourselves for ONE MOMENT that you have the right to speak for women, their choices, their thoughts, or their lives ANY MORE
Your attempts to own us, to harm us, to control us, to dictate policy to us, to impose your will over us – IS AT AN END
You look scared, and I can smell your fear. And you should be afraid. Cause we aren’t going to take your shit anymore.
We know how to direct 80% of the buying power and we know how to vote.
The age of old, crooked, white men is over. Consider this the death knell. Deep down, you know it. And we know it too.
Oh, and one more thing – deprive us of access and we will deprive YOU of access. If you take my meaning.
WE ARE THE MAJORITY
WE ARE THE 52%
