A Brief Open Letter to Barack Obama
Dear Senator Obama,
I recently read reports from your sister’s events in Tampa, I think it’s awesome that you gave your sister a copy of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” –
“She said he taught her to ride a bicycle, made her practice harder math problems and start an exercise program, took her on college visits and even gave her her first women’s health book – “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” a 1973 guide that came out of the women’s movement and focused on female sexuality, health and hygiene.”
As one of the bloggers for OBOS, I can’t help being a little delighted by the notion – very cool. Please note that OBOS has since released new versions and a book for young women, so we’ll be looking for your order for the girls. 🙂
Speaking only for myself, now, I would like to hear more from you on this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this. I’d also like a pledge to not put anti-science, anti-woman yahoos in charge of, you know, science and women.
In fairness, a lot of these things I link are touched on in the Issues section of Obama’s site.
