More importantly, world-and-women-wise, today is the 75th (yikes! time is a runaway train, no foolin') anniversary of the birth of journalist and social activist Gloria Marie Steinem. What young feminista/Baby Boomer did not delight in the quote attributed to Gloria: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle." My very own eyes saw those words on many a T shirt under which no customary underwear constrained the wearer's bosom, set free. whew! Or "The truth will set you free. But first it will piss you off." Yup: anger is a terrible master, but it is an amazingly effective servant. And bless you, Ms. Steinem, for having said: "Women may be the one group that grows more radical with age." Think Lizzy Cady Stanton, revolutionary in crinolines, totally rad.
Loftier, more seriously, Gloria noted that, "like art, revolutions come from combining what exists into what has never existed before."
And best of all, to my mind:"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities," said Gloria S., Birthday Woman, "Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."
With all her being, Ms. Eulah would agree. Happy Birthday. Go Girls, this month and all year round. March on.
