It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The National Women's History Museum: One Step Closer

For over ten years the National Women's History Museum has been struggling to find a physical home in Washington D.C. The effort has taken a giant step closer to reality this week as HR 1700, The National Women's History Museum Act of 2009, passed on the House floor this week. The vote will now go to the Senate. If passed, the museum will have permission to break ground at 12th and Independence SW.

In a nation where 51% of the population still does not have its equal rights recognized, this is a major step to having a significant presence in our nation's capital to educate the public as to the unique stories and struggles of American women in their fight for justice and equality.

Congratulations to NWHM president, Joan Wages, and the rest of the officers, staff, and volunteers who have worked so hard for so long. Here's hoping things go as well in the Senate.

Help make history and lobby your Senator to vote in favor of the NWHM Act of 2009. Find out how here.
