In Aug 1920, Febb E Burn flipped her son Harry's vote with a few short words: "be a good boy" & "vote for suffrage." His vote was crucial: #Tennessee was the last state where women had hope of picking up the crucial 36th vote for ratification of the 19th Amendment. ⭐️ #VOTE ⭐️ Image
For 72 yrs, women lobbied & agitated for the vote. In 1917, "militant" activists led by Alice Paul organized the 1st White House picket. It lasted months in all weather. Wilson had Paul & dozens others jailed in conditions so abysmal they went on a hunger strike. ⭐️ #VOTE Image
Mother: Check out Alice Paul, PhD. #JerseyGirl. #Quaker. Led the "militant" wing of the #suffrage movement. Stood on soapboxes & gave bossy speeches. Brought the 72-!!!-year fight for the #vote to victory, then wrote the ERA, still unratified 97!!! years later. @janpurcell2

#28 'Americanah' by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This book asks profound questions about 'home', about what cultures expect - or demand - of people born into or outside of them, and how the backdrops of our lives can define the things we value, notice, and think about most.
#29 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien

A perfect adventure with gold, dragons, goblins, wizards, magic, peril, treasure, and morals. I wish I'd had this read to me as a kid because the various songs and scrapes lend themselves perfectly to that.

Book and author are both badass. Image
#30 'The Eden Express' by Mark #Vonnegut

An eloquent & deeply human account of his descent into psychotic mania, two relapses, and eventual long-term health.

A @nytimesbooks review nailed it: "Required reading for those who want to understand insanity from the inside." Image

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
