Editor:

Thanks hundreds of Lower Rio Grande Valley women for your march Saturday, January 21st, in Brownsville.

Such hope. Such vision. Such potential for a much fairer United States.
I felt waves of non-violence and compassion emanating from the marchers.
I was honored to join the marchers.

As a male, I was forced to examine at least some of my conventionally sexist ideas.

I hope this reflection results in a deeper understanding of what millions, even billions, of women encounter daily, be it in violent homes, sexist workplaces and under unjust laws.
And I hope it motivates me to listen more to women and support their desires, especially when it comes to voting for candidates who will enhance their lives.

Eugene “Gene” Novogrodsky
