women in the office

This was inspired by this post by @materialofonebeing

Twenty-nine-year-old Dr. John H. Watson, thin and nervous, stepped off the ship in Portsmouth. He had returned from Maiwand when a thousand had not. Other men embraced kith and kin who greeted them at the dock. Other men kissed the ground and rowdily struck off together in search of drinks and women. John struggled with his bag and found the railway ticket office. One for the first train to London.

Hillary Clinton shared some exciting news today on Twitter - over 15,000 women have signed up to run for office through our #RunToWin program! She continues to inspire us all to resist, persist, and enlist. We’re proud to be fighting with her to elect even more women to office.

Mediocrity is the true metric of equality.

Box Office: 'Wonder Woman' Just Topped 'Green Lantern's Total Gross In One Weekend
'Wonder Woman' made $223 million on its worldwide opening weekend.

They said a female comic book superhero movie couldn’t work. They said women couldn’t direct big-budget action blockbusters. They said audiences overseas wouldn’t go for a big-budget spectacular not centered around a white guy. They said a lot of things over the last few decades. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman just outgrossed the entire global total of Green Lantern ($219m) this weekend. Oh, and by tomorrow, it will probably be the biggest DC Comics movie ever not based around Batman or Superman. Sorry, Constantine ($230m in 2005 and sans 3D), I still think you’re pretty cool.
