“Even more infuriating, Senator Warren’s male colleagues were permitted to read that same letter by Mrs. King later. Yes, they did so as a show of support for Senator Warren, but the fact they—the men—were permitted to read it, and only after Sessions was confirmed, is a blatant reminder we have a lot of work to do as women and men for the cause of equal rights, feminism, and equal respect across the board for women in a man’s world.”

Nevertheless, Kim D Bailey persisted this week on #breakingthelegacyofsilence

Melted Facade by Patricia Harris 

Escaping The Vault

Title: Melted Facade

By: Patricia Harris

Created: Wednesday 2/1/2017

Description:Sometimes it feels like who I am is a melting facade. Like no one really sees the face of my truth, for all that they see is the face of their own expectations of me. Exposure of self seems destructive, so I find the melted facade easier than the truth of self that no one wants to see anyway.

Exposing under the facade
Built on melted wax,
Hidden behind a constructed
Image of a perfect visage.

Truth peering through
As the melting began,
Showing that which
I fear has always been.

Exposure through the cracks
As the facade melts away,
Teaching the truth of who
Is reality anyway.
