Mike's Blog Round Up

Daily links to great liberal blog posts...

Monday night's DNC was pretty great, right? Powerful women saying powerful things, and as it was on the eve of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, Eva Longoria Bastón wearing symbolically important Suffragette white was not just a coinkydink. I can hardly wait for tonight's edition. Today we look at the state of women in our political process.

By Hook or By Book reminds us that 100 years later, not all women are treated equally.

I'll Call It Like I See It tells us about how women --even Kamala Harris-- are still told that they are out of their lane.

And speaking of staying in your lane, Jezebel tell us the story of an older woman cycling champion was stripped of her record for taking menopause medications. We've still got a long way to go.

Bonus Track: OG blogger Rants from the Rookery gives us the empowerment meme we need.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).
