Okay, so we’re here now (wherever ‘here’ might actually turn out being…)
The glass ceiling of Javits is still in tact (more’s the pity, I hear plenty of people say…) and my little girl could still become the first female President of the United States.
So, what’s next? There’s a very clear (but not very long, in reality) 4 year window here to find the next Gamechanger, to find the next person who can restore our faith in humanity, in opportunity.
4yrs to fashion a response to this insane acceptance of gross misogyny, racism, fear & hatred. Because whilst I’m #Stillwither, her defeat cannot be the end. There has to be the next candidate lining up to take on the fight. There needs to be a succession plan. And probably more importantly than ever, we each need to realise that we are all, individually, responsible for the change we want to see in the world.
So, I choose to be a Gamechanger from now on. For myself. For my family. And for every damned thing that I say I really care about. It’s up to me. (And you.) Because, let’s be honest, the global collection of ‘People in Charge’ right now aren’t really likely to do it for us, are they?
