If I Can't Dance: Women Unite

Following Susan B. Anthony's tenet to "organize, agitate, educate," we honor International Women's Day with vital, still-appalling numbers -  over one in three women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence, every 10 minutes an adolescent girl dies from that violence, women's earnings continue to be less than 79% of men's, women make up just 17% of government ministers and remain vastly underrepresented politically, one in five female U.S. college students will be raped, etc etc etc - and, to offset them, a rich tableau of women fighting back. Plus Nobel-winning women who have, against the odds, changed the world. Emma Goldman famously insisted on including herself in that change with, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." See women dance in India, Palestine, Romania, Afghanistan, the U.S., almost everywhere.
