Please tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up in a liberal (for the time) household near a small town in west Texas. My dad was a staunch Democrat and we discussed politics at home. I got married at 19, had two children, and was apolitical until I took my senior history seminar on women's studies at George Mason University in 1972. The seminar and Betty Friedan's book opened my eyes to how our culture limited our lives. I supported the feminist movement, which made my husband unhappy, of course. After 23 years of marriage, I was divorced and began working for a government agency in northern Virginia. I retired in 2003 and returned to Texas to look after my mother and uncle.

Why are you joining this group?

I never know who will be upset when I express my liberal views. I'm not allowed to talk about politics in my nephews house, for instance. I look forward to meeting with other women who have similar views. I have time now to become involved in politics, and I believe when women get together they are powerful. Sometimes I think that is why the conservative men are intent on demeaning women -- they are afraid of us!

This group is for TRUE liberals or progressives, and for those who identify as female. Does that describe you?

Yes, it does describe me.

What Jeretta G. is saying about this Meetup Group

It is a great place to meet other women of like minds and talk about issues that are important to us, i.e., women's issues, education, medical availability, etc. It is also a place to find out what is happening in the Democratic world.
