Alaska rallies against Sarah Palin  

In an election ridden with ignorant and clueless people incorrectly labeling Sarah Palin as a feminist and a maverick, this is really refreshing. Over 1,000 women in Alaska banded together to partake in the largest protest the state has ever seen. They were all fed up with Sarah Palin, and they wanted the world to know it. They stood together, holding signs with phrases such as: "Sarah Palin: Undoing 150 Years of American Feminism" and "Palin Does Not Speak for Us." They united to serve a common goal: keeping our country out of the hands of unqualified people who will do more harm than good.

Today in my Feminism in the U.S. class, we started talking about how feminism doesn't seem to be what it used to be, and how "lame" we seem in comparison to the women of the past who chained themselves to the gates of the White House to gain the right to vote. But I guess there is hope for us after all.

What next?
