Women for women

I’ve been meaning, for a few weeks now, to write about how women’s actions are the primary reason the patriarchy is still surviving, how they (we) actively undermine other women unlike almost any other ethnic/religious group that would work together to become more powerful. The last year certainly gave us some remarkable examples of such betrayals.

But that will have to wait. Today, I see this and I blub:
Senate passes Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: Who voted how

The voting was almost exactly along party lines, except for the five Republican senators who courageously voted Yea:
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Kay Hutchison (R-TX)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
Arlen Specter (R-PA)

Four of these five of the Republicans who broke party lines in their voting are women.
Every female Republican Senator voted Yea. Every female Senator voted Yea.

Now, go ahead, tell me to HOPE!TM
