How Picking A Bra Is Like Picking A Paycheck

Madison Kimrey is my newest tweenage hero.

In the feminist community (i.e., life), Phyllis Schlafly has been a bit of a jerk over the years, particularly in regards to her view that equal pay for equal work discourages working men from marrying working women, leaving those women unwed and therefore unfulfilled as human beings.

Apparently, non-discriminatory compensation is major bonerkill in the Schlafly household. Flash forward out of the Victorias ages to the recent work of Madison Kimrey, a pre-teen activist — age 12! — who reached out to Schlafly in an open letter:

“…it’s been kind of hard to find something I have in common with you. Then, it came to me. I bet you wear a bra.”

Read the full letter here: http://samuel-warde.com/2014/04/open-letter-phyllis-schlafly-12-year-old-madison-kimrey-guest-post/

She’s also blogged about other feminist topics like Republicans vs. “Trannies”her petition to end anti-gay nonsense in Arizona, and rape culture.

Bravo, Madison! Keep fighting the good fight!
