Unfortunately, all you have to is show up, and you're already a combatant.
I am laughing as I write. Hilaaaaaarious! This should be on the cover. R
A fine, fine question...
It is a fine question, but the thing is, there are so many "wars" about which one could be asked the same question that it's impossible to fight on all fronts. "Mommy, what did you do during the war on [Drugs/Poverty/Civil Liberties/the Middle Class/Minorities/etc.]" are all equally valid questions. I regret not doing more in the war on women, but my time and money have been dedicated to the war on civil liberties which I think is the more important overarching threat.
One of your best, Liza!

What Brunhilde said.
un bellissimo cartoon!!!!
Wonderful. And when will we see more women such as yourself, for example, win Pulitzers (or even be named as finalists) for editorial cartooning?
I vote to make it editorial comic of the year.
I may submit it for the Pulitzer committee...don't know how to do that. But you guys have given me confidence to do so. Thanks!
Still wondering... so since motherhood is full time noble job.... can women who have children be kicked out of all job interviews......??? Also do mothers of children qualify for unemployment if they lose their "job" if they are also engaged in full time noble jobs of bringing the kids up?

I am not laughing at this preposterous joke played on those of us who have been working in the real world as well as bringing up our kids ...going through all the pain associated with working, facing the ignominy of losing jobs, retraining, starting all over and continuing to fight and all that whether we need the money or not. And no Ms Chrystia Freeland.....(Bill Maher show April 20, 2012) not all of us heave a great sigh of relief to be out of the house nor do we heave any sigh of grief. That was NOT our motivation to work at what we trained so hard for and got our doctorate........unbelievable shame!
Shared to FB. And DO submit it for the Pulitzer!
Nice! That'll be an interesting question a few years from now.
We should all be on the front lines in this particular "war". Great little cartoon! Thank you
Thanks, please take this etching of our time, with your other gems and do send to the New Yorker -- you are deserving of very wide audience. Global. I will fight this war with you. When they can dictate health to our very best people, it's on.
Clear the way until we get it done.
cool! this will be an interesting question a few years from now...marlboro lights
