Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughesโ€™ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was โ€œevery housewife is one man away from welfare.โ€

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Womenโ€™s Action Alliance, which createdย the first battered womenโ€™s shelters in history.ย They attacked womenโ€™s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

Fucking heroes.

I was the first female captain to walk onto the bridge of a starship and issue the signature command, โ€œEngage.โ€ I was also the first captain to have more than seven hairdos within a season, a corset sewn into her space suit, and a bra that resembled an alien species. I was puffed and shorn and stuffed and lit and scrutinized by every executive on the lot. I was criticized and cajoled, alternatively patronized and petted. Itโ€™s as if they had all gone out of their way to find this exotic animal who could, in fact, walk and talk and act at the same time, and yet when she appeared on deck, they were stunned to discover that under that feline coat was, God help us, a feline. — "The Influence of Captain Janeway" by Kate Mulgrew (Foreward toย Homer Simpson Marches on Washington: Dissent through American Popular Culture,ย 2010)
