"When I first began wearing these shoes I thought my reproductive rights were secure. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. " grin

I love the one that said "Rosa sat; Wendy stood."

Just also realized they have my usually impossible-to-find 10.5 Narrow. Hmmm.

Brilliant. Some people are so clever envy but grin. I am not much of a radical but this creeping attack on something so fundamental to women's freedom is radicalising me.

fits perfectly up a republicans rear end


girliefriend Fri 28-Jun-13 18:30:59

I don't get it confused

What am i missing?

Talkinpeace Fri 28-Jun-13 18:40:19

Same here. I realise I've been a bit complacent about women's rights.
I have a fab husband and motivated kids so its easy to forget the shit that misogynists do

then again (utterly outing self here) the chap who asked me if my husband approved of me working backed without taking his eyes off me after I "smiled" at him

Velve Fri 28-Jun-13 18:42:36

Love it!

ThirdTimesABrokenFanjo Fri 28-Jun-13 18:43:37

talking peace

if only that was enough to out you! sad

you'll find many women have had that or very similar, (is your husband OK with you doing shifts/ is you husband OK with you leaving him home with the baby etc)

Talkinpeace Fri 28-Jun-13 18:52:12

tee hee - I know its common : I've been spoilt because Accountancy is pretty egalitarian (you either pass those darned exams or you don't)
what amused me was his reaction to my "smile"
he apologised when I was back there the next year grin

ThirdTimesABrokenFanjo Fri 28-Jun-13 19:00:53

sorry I haven't slept for days, irony is a bit beyond me right now blush

This is a bit shallow, but is my thread a discussion of the day!? grin

Tis why I clicked on it.

Glad I did, proper lolled (literally, am lolling about in bed like a lazy oaf)

LineyRunner Fri 28-Jun-13 20:47:30

Wendy Davis is simply tremendous.

BusterKeaton Fri 28-Jun-13 21:15:36

Fantastic! I love crowd cleverness.

Dogmatix34 Fri 28-Jun-13 21:42:49

Amazing story, found it quite emotional

Mostly people depress me. But sometimes, like right now, I love people. Thanks for posting this.

I still haven't watched any actual footage of her epic session but I've read about it.

ThirdTimesABrokenFanjo Fri 28-Jun-13 23:01:43

Ooh you have to watch, I've never seen so much fabulousness in all my life smile

BOF Fri 28-Jun-13 23:21:15

Wendy Davis is a modern-day hero. Utterly awesome. What a fantastic, principled, AMAZING example to people everywhere.

garlicnutty Sat 29-Jun-13 01:04:16

Just adding a few grin grin grin to the thread!

Littleballofhate Sat 29-Jun-13 01:43:18

From now on in tough moments I shall ask myself WWWD? (what would Wendy do?) She is my new badass hero!

lisianthus Sat 29-Jun-13 01:52:56

grin thanks for posting this. It's made my day!

Guerrillacrochet Sat 29-Jun-13 03:31:10

Brilliant! "Guaranteed to outrun the patriarchy on race day" smile third without wanting to derail you, have you seen similarly brilliant Amazon reviews for Bic for her? Absolutely bloody hilarious

MsJupiterJones Sat 29-Jun-13 05:09:06

This is fantastic.

limitedperiodonly Sat 29-Jun-13 13:12:00

She's great.

guerillacrochet I don't care if it's derailing. That's fantastic.

Wendy Davis is a modern day hero and did a fantastic job. Mizuno should be proud to have supplied the shoes she used! Those reviews are fab - I particularly liked this one:
By Bryan Berry
I bought them in pink with green stripe. I will put them on my feet when I need to run far. When I am tired, I will ask myself: WWWD?! Then I will keep running.

evelynj Sat 29-Jun-13 16:13:06

Terrific! I'm planning to treat myself to watching some of her in action next week. It's been a mighty long while since I've found someone so inspiring!

JulesJules Sat 29-Jun-13 17:05:19
