I will be revamping this web site so things will look a little rough for a while, please bear with me. She is a member of Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017 Democratic Party. She defeated Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley, a term incumbent, in what was widely seen as the biggest upset victory in the midterm election primaries. She defeated Republican opponent Anthony Pappas in the November general election.
She was reelected in the election, defeating John Cummings. Taking office at age 29, Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress. Ocasio-Cortez attended Boston University, where she double-majored in international relations and economics, graduating cum laude. She was ly an activist and worked as a waitress and bartender before running for Congress in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voices power, compassion, and beauty.
For a while people have been asking me to make a de for AOC. She is brave voice personified. She has a platform, not just as a congresswoman, but also as a carefully developed social media presence, and she uses it artfully. It was hated, in fact, and denied a public place. I think that she sounds young and womanly. I want to say adorable, actually. She has so much to say and I hope she continues to have this immense strength and courage to withstand the attacks. This is just a snapshot in time. February 28, During a hearing in the U. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it clear that Donald Trump and other Republicans have used religion—her faith included—to justify all kinds of atrocities against the very people who need the protection of the government.
There is nothing holy about turning someone away from a hospital. It is not up to us. It is not up to us to deny medical care. It is up to us to feed the hungry, to clothe the poor, to protect children, and to love all people as ourselves.
It is a culture of impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women, and an entire structure of power that supports that. It is a beautiful speech that she mostly improvised. You know what she means. Having a wife does not make a decent man. I believe it was the improvisational music in the moment that prompted her to alter those words to make them perfect. This is rhetoric as music and not just persuasion. But then yesterday, Representative Yoho decided to come to the floor of the House of Representatives and make excuses for his behavior, and that I could not let go.
I could not allow my nieces, I could not allow the little girls that I go home to, I could not allow victims of verbal abuse and worse to see that, to see that excuse and to Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017 our Congress accept it as legitimate and accept it as an apology and to accept silence as a form of acceptance. I could not allow that to stand which is why I am rising today to raise this point of personal privilege.
I do not need Representative Yoho to apologize to me. Clearly he does not want to. Clearly when given the opportunity he will not and I will not stay up late at night waiting for an apology from a man who has no remorse over calling women and using abusive language towards women, but what I do have issue with is using women, our wives and daughters, as shields and excuses for poor behavior.
Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters. I am two years younger than Mr. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. She also describes how it was hard to trust some of the police officers who were directing the lawmakers on how to protect themselves during the January 6th terrorist assault on the capitol. It is very brave for a lawmaker to reveal her own vulnerability in this way. She has turned vulnerability into power by using her voice. But it has to be true, too. That is just the way to fool yourself into believing that you are exempt from the claim or responsibility that love makes on you to repair the world.
A post Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017 by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aoc. She served in the Georgia House of Representatives from toserving as Democratic minority Leader from to She lost to Brian Kemp in an election marked by widely accepted accusations that Kemp engaged in voter suppression as Georgia Secretary of State. They were looking for me to say that no compromise of our democracy had occurred, and most expected polite compromise in the language I used to call an end to the fight.
And I understand conceding the election would not be right. I admit the playing field is never level, and the reality is that a of us enjoy a degree of privilege over another at various points. Yet, knowing a truth does not make it correct. Right and wrong remain valid, real constructs, and the Georgia elections crossed the line. And I said so. On national television. Concession accepts an act as right or proper. Leadership is a constant search for the distinction between when compromise is an act of power and when concession masks submission—or when the fight is on.
I know this election demanded a moment to be uncompromising—to build a future without conceding my principles. I refused to be gaslighted into throwing away my power, diminishing my voice. I had the hopes, dreams and demands of 1. And thousands more who had been unfairly, unlawfully silenced.
And whether speaking up is about an unfair election or a flawed system of workplace promotion, the obligation remains the same: once we recognize that wrong exists, we must fight to change it every day. Stacey Abrams had co-founded the New Georgia Project ina year after the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, removing safeguards and reducing federal oversight of states. She also launched Fair Count to ensure accuracy in the Census and greater participation in civic engagement, and the Southern Economic Advancement Project, a public policy initiative to broaden economic power and build equity in the South.
In all these initiatives she has made a point to give credit to her collaborators. Senate election and special election, which gave Democrats control over the US Senate. One curious thing about selling at street markets and festivals is that, even though I am sitting right there, people often react to the work as if it is not mine.
I could be just a booth sitter and not the maker, after all, and many assume that, for some reason. Sometimes I feel invisible. That means I can learn a lot from the frank things people say. Last winter downtown some young women were looking at the pin-back buttons, which were right in front of me, but I was masked and behind the plexiglass and grid wall. Sometimes I know I want to do a piece about someone but it takes a while for me to come up with a crystallized message.
I want to highlight some things in the story of Wilma Mankiller, who was the principal chief of the Cherokee Nation for ten years. The Cherokee Nation is a Native American tribe. Although she met enormous resistance as a leader because of her sex, women traditionally held political power among the Cherokee before they encountered patriarchal Europeans.
So when a man married, he took up residence with the clan of his wife.
The women of each of the seven clans elected their own leaders. It was common custom among the ancient Cherokees that any important questions relating to war and peace were left to a vote of the women. There were brave Cherokee women who followed their husbands and brothers into battle. These female warriors were called War Women or Pretty Women, and they were considered dignitaries of the tribe, many of them being as powerful in council as in battle. The Cherokees also had a custom of asing to a certain woman the task of declaring whether pardon or punishment should be inflicted on great offenders.
When she was 34, inMankiller was gravely injured in a car accident. She was in a head-on collision and her best friend was in the other car, and her friend died. Mankiller was very near death and remembers deciding to come back to be with her young daughters. Not only was her body severely damaged, she also had to deal with the grief and guilt of being involved in the death of her friend. Mankiller met many difficulties in her life, but when she talks about this in her autobiography, it seems like this was a defining event in her life, something that divided her story in two. In the documentary film, a friend says that Wilma told her that after this experience, she was no longer afraid of death.
But she was also no longer afraid to live. I had experienced death, felt its presence, touched it, and then let it go. It was a very spiritual thing, a rare natural gift. From that point on, I have always thought of myself as the woman who lived before and the woman who lives afterward. At the beginning of some Cherokee traditional prayers and healing ceremonies, everyone is asked to remove all negative things from the mind, to have a Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017 mind and heart for the prayer and ceremony ahead.
I tried to do that in the process of healing. After that, I realized I could survive anything. I had faced adversity and turned it into a positive experience—a better path. I had found the way to be of good mind. It is not looking away from suffering in order to feel better. I think she approaches this as a mental health issue, that mental health is something you work at.
It is process and it is work. In her memoir, Mankiller talks about the seal of the Cherokee nation, and says that its seven-pointed star represents the seven Cherokee clans. I placed the star three times in this de besides the one that is behind her and only shows a bit.
One is on her brow, Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017 is centered over the place of her birth and her death on an old map a map that references historic treatiesand one is floating on top of a complete seal.
That was her power. Wilma Pearl Mankiller November 18, — April 6, was an American Cherokee activist, social worker, community developer and the first woman elected to serve as Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. The move was traumatic. Her family felt completely out of place. She lived in the poorest neighborhoods in San Francisco and learned first hand about poverty and social justice.
After high school, she married a well-to-do Ecuadorian and bore two daughters. Inspired by feminism and the civil and Indian rights movements of the s, Mankiller became involved in the Occupation of Alcatraz and later participated in the land and compensation struggles for the Pit River Tribe.
There she learned how to deal with treaty rights, the law, and government bureaucracies. Returning to Oklahoma in the fall ofMankiller was hired by the Cherokee Nation as an economic stimulus coordinator. With her expertise at preparing documentation, she became a successful grant writer, and by the early s was directing the newly created by her Community Development Department of the Cherokee Nation.
As Director she deed and supervised innovative community projects allowing rural citizens to identify their own challenges and, through their labor, participate in solving them. Her management ability came to the notice of the incumbent Principal Chief, Ross Swimmer, who invited her to run as his deputy in the tribal elections. Even though they had different party affiliations, he noted that she cared about her people and she could be trusted with money. When the duo won, she became the first elected woman to serve as Deputy Chief of the Cherokee Nation.
Inwhen Swimmer took a position in the federal administration of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, she was elevated to Principal Chief, serving until During her administration, the Cherokee government built new health clinics, created a mobile eye-care clinic, established ambulance services, and created early education, adult education and job training programs. She developed revenue streams including factories, retail stores, restaurants, and bingo operations, while establishing self-governance allowing the tribe to manage its own finances.
She sought to balance business-based economic development with tribal enterprises and social programs to help the poorest members of the tribe. Throughout her life, she suffered from serious health problems including polycystic kidney disease, myasthenia gravis, lymphoma, breast cancer, and needed two kidney transplants.Lady wants sex DC Washington 20017
