I’m pretty wiped out from the planning and implementation of a visit by Guerrilla Girls on Tour for our annual Women’s History Month celebration (why can’t we spread this out the rest of the year? Oh yeah, those are men’s history months!) It was pretty exciting and energizing all the same. My favorite bit was a bit with Hilary and Obama singing “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better” from “Annie Get Your Gun.” [“yes I can” says the Obama character over and over, while Hilary says “I wish I’d thought of that first”] One of my students from the Intro to WGSS class had a part in their closing bit and she did a great job. She brought along her mother and a bunch of her mother’s friends, all women of a certain age who were active in the 1960s and 1970s. One of them said that 2008 is the “year of infinite possibilities” for women because 8 turned on it side is the symbol for infinity. Cool!
The results of the Ohio and Texas primaries are somewhat encouraging, if only to prove that Clinton is not entirely dead in the water. It will certainly be an interesting couple of months.
