These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age (56). I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.
I called and left a message for the White House today. It was in praise of the President's support for equal access to affordable birth control. But it doesn't really matter why I called. It's the fact that I could call.
I realize that there are women in other parts of the world who can't just sit at their desks, pick up the phone and call the President and make their feelings known.
