Much has happened in those two years, some of it good, much of it bad. Among the good, women are still persisting. This evening we are going to see the movie "On The Basis Of Sex", the biopic about RBG, to commemorate this anniversary.
As I write this post, women are again marching, but we did not join them. My walking is more limited these days. However I am still walking, trying to get in a two mile walk most days.
This morning we walked in the neighborhood, as usual. With my partner at my side and classic rock music on my iPod, I did my best to be in the moment, to appreciate the chilly, blustery, fresh day, another day when the rain didn't materialize, and not dwell on my stiff back and complaining joints.
It's fun to watch the dogs and their owners play in the dog park as we walk.
The clouds are thin, with now and then a ray of sun breaking through.
Here at home the walls keep going higher. Work goes on every day, from dark to dark.
Meanwhile we await the latest announcement from that man who sits in our White House, as we squabble over that other wall, while hundreds of thousands of federal employees go without pay, and immigrants continue to be abused at the border.
Post Script: "On the Basis of Sex" is a very good movie. But more, it is an important movie. It left me feeling both happy and angry; happy that we have had someone like Ruth Bader Ginsburg championing women's rights, happy that we have come a long way, and angry that we still have a long way to go before we can really say we have equal rights and opportunities not just for women but for all affected groups.
