Action seen in Reaction

Thank you to Evon Bachaus for teaching me in the mid-70s that "The action is in the reaction" --in other words, you can measure the effectiveness of an action by the amount of reaction it stirs up.

My first lesson in feminist organizing!

Thank you to Marie June for reminding me of this principle today --that the progress made for minorities, women, immigrants, LGBTQ folks, pregnant women needing to end a pregnancy, etc. is what caused Tuesday's big backlash.

Taking it a step further, Marie promises that we will all bring about a ton of progress through our reaction to the Trump squeak-by election.
