How did you become a feminist?

if a feminist means-that all people are to be treated equally witout the threat of power and coersion-and without the intrusion of someone else's controlling ideas-and without being bullied by the few over the one-then I have always been one..as the son of survivors, I am acutely aware of the consquences that happen when good people stand by and do nothing

Why did you join the NOW-NYC meetup?

I want to do more than send in the occasional check..I have a lifetime experience working with groups.,and use to run groups in schools to have boys learn what its like to be a woman-via psychodrama-and also showing how boundaries are blurred to almost encourage attacks on women

What other organizations are you involved in? What other activities are you involved in?

Emily's List, moveon, NYS Democratic Party, -have done phone banking for Grace Wang and planning on doing so for Mark Murphy..have supported various candidates financially..

Describe your vision for women in the United States and Planet Earth.

I would like to see more women as governors..since state legislatures have great power these days..would like to see Nancy Pelosi as the speaker again..and if all goes well..Hillary as president in 2016

What blogs do you read?

No answer yet

Introduction
