If there’s anything you should watch today, it’s this clip of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez eviscerating Rep. Ted Yoho. Ocasio-Cortez hits on several points that resonate which is 1) that women receive these remarks about themselves frequently and 2) having a wife or daughters does not mean get a pass. We see this all the time with race and after months – no years – of hearing this, we’re sick of it. Ocasio-Cortez channels the frustration that all women feel when we are at the end of comments like this. Very few of us choose to or can even speak up about these matters. More often times than not, we have to suppress. We hold it in and we move on to the next day. I’m excited for young girls to have a role model like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to look up to. She already is making so many of us proud to have her represent us.
