Stand up. Don't lower your eyes. Don't look the other Way. Be the troublemaker. Shatter the glass ceiling. Even if it is uncomfortable. As Stanton once said, The best protection any woman can have is courage. Why don't you get a job, supposed "yippie," instead of tormenting women.

Hey efd and Gaylord.
I was just driving home and love what you guys just said about pledging and volunteering time. I have been a 30yr listener and supporter. I have been volunteering weekly on the Wake N Bake show since the summer. Very rewarding to help with more than just donating money. And both myself and girlfriend find swag for life a much easier way to donate.

Every time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for every
other woman. To me in turn this means, every time she chooses to look the other way or remain silent, it has an impact on every other woman coming after her.
