We must address the current war on women going on in this country and in congress and why I entitled a grievance, “Occupy Patriarchy: End the War on Women” as women’s civil rights as a group are under serious attack and women are being specifically targeted for discrimination. Patriarchy is the underlying framework upon which war, environmental degradation, denigration of women, authoritarian hierarchy, rapacious corporate practices, exploitation, and subjugation of individuals, groups, and countries are based. The passage of the Equal Rights Amendment is fundamental to women achieving true parity and is long past due and should be part of this grievance in my opinion, and should not be put off for any reason, any more than any of the rest of our demands should be. Women have waited long enough for the yolk of patriarchy to be lifted and we must rise up and claim our full citizenship. After all, we are 52% of the 99%!
