On This Historic Inaugural Day – Could Obama Be a Feminist President?

By January 20, 2009

Follow me on:

President-elect, Barack Obama can be a US President who could quite possibly restore America and repair all that George W. has done in an attempt to strip away female’s reproductive rights. On top of that, according to Ms. Magazine, Barack Obama may actually be a feminist president. The magazine published a special inaugural issue - on the cover... Obama ripping open the chest of his dress shirt-and-tie à la Clark Kent to reveal a t-shirt announcing, "This is what a feminist looks like."

As an advocate of contraception, sex education, birth control access, and female reproductive rights, I am thrilled to witness the inauguration of a president who will, finally, be putting the needs of the public over his own agenda. Change has come!
