"This is an historic moment - for
the Congress, and for the women of this country. It is a moment for
which we have waited more than 200 years. Never losing faith, we
waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights.
But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing
faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and
women are created equal. For our daughters and granddaughters,
today we have broken the marble ceiling."
-- Nancy Pelosi
In honor of the first female Speaker of the House, DJDeedle
welcomes you to the femisphere.
This week's Deedlecast takes a well-deserved swing at the
patriarchy. Just remember as you listen that any
patriarchy-affirming stereotypes you may encounter are included for
purely ironic purposes.
If you have some time stop by some of DJDeedle's favorite denizens
of the femisphere and show them some love:

patriarchy-smashing isn't delicate work, patriarchy smashing
Deedlecasts contain a few rude words.
