I had planned on writing today about the amazing women that collectively formed our Nation Women's Soccer Team.

They are so inspiring and amazing. They re strong and fierce. They are brave and they are confident. They are everything we were told we could be when we grew up. I spent the morning yesterday smiling and filled with happiness as I watched the parade to honor them.

And then at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the Secretary of Labour gave a press conference to address his sweetheart deal with the registered sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Wapo writes:
His account did not sit well with Barry Krischer, who was the Palm Beach County attorney during the case. Krischer, a Democrat, said Acosta “should not be allowed to rewrite history.”

Acosta’s South Florida office had gotten to the point of drafting an indictment that could have sent Epstein to federal prison for life. But it was never filed, leading to Epstein’s guilty plea to two state prostitution-related charges. In addition to the work-release jail sentence, Epstein was required to make payments to victims and register as a sex offender.

Krischer said the federal indictment was “abandoned after secret negotiations between Mr. Epstein’s lawyers and Mr. Acosta.” He added: “If Mr. Acosta was truly concerned with the State’s case and felt he had to rescue the matter, he would have moved forward with the 53-page indictment that his own office drafted.”
I was nauseated at the things he said.

Women really are second class citizens to men like Trump, Epstein Acosta and more, and I cannot tell you how utterly disheartened I am about this. I truly love our male allies and friends like you all reading this, but it just isn't enough. Something HAS to change. Women can only scream so loud for equal protection from men. We need your help.
