here's a beautiful map that helped american women earn voting rights / boing boing

the awakening by henry mayer is considered one of the finest pieces of political art of the 20th-century and is often mentioned as the most beautiful of the "suffrage maps." american women earned the vote from west to east before the right became federal law. the detail in the faces of the eastern women is really great in the full-size image. the poem below by alice duer miller says: look forward, women, always; utterly cast awaythe memory of hate and struggle and bitterness;bonds may endure for a night, but freedom comes with the day,and the free must remember nothing less. forget the strife; remember those who strove—the first defeated women, gallant and few,who gave us hope, as a mother gives us love,forget them not, and this remember, too: how at the later call to come forth and unite,women untaught, uncounselled, alone and apart,rank upon rank came forth in unguessed might,each one answering the call of her own wise heart. they came from toil and want, from leisure and ease,those who knew only life, and learned women of fame,girls and the mothers of girls, and the mothers of these,no one knew whence or how, but they came, they came. the faces of some were stern, and some were gay,and some were pale with the terror of unreal dangers;but their hearts knew this : that hereafter come what may,women to women would never again be strangers. • the awakening (via library of congress)

ted cruz's democratic challenger is a small-dollars fundraising monster who won't take pac money / boing boing

rep. beto o’rourke [d-el paso] raised over $2.1 million last quarter for a senate race against bad person ted cruz [r-satan's asshole], in the form of 46,574 donations, primarily from in-state donors, with $0 coming from pacs. cruz raised $1.6m in the same period. o'rourke is a left-wing, sanders-ish dem, who supports single-payer healthcare, a woman's right to choose, and a just solution in israel/palestine. but the way o’rourke is raising money changes the game. the el paso congressman does not have much in the way of a national fundraising network, has refused corporate pac money, and is known among his colleagues to be a less-than-enthusiastic fundraiser. that’s the kind of lawmaker who often had little future in washington — but exactly the kind many grassroots democrats would like to see rise. the type of person who is good at spending hours a day with doctors, bankers, lawyers and other professionals who can write four and five-figure checks is a) probably not hard-wired to be a conviction politician and b) vulnerable to have their politics diluted just by virtue of the conversations they’re having day in and day out. former rep. tom perriello,d-va., said that spending so much time on the phone fundraising winds up creating “an enormous anti-populist element, particularly for dems, who are most likely to be hearing from people who can write at least a $500 check. they may be liberal, quite liberal in fact, but are als...
