When I began building this blog, I knew that the banner picture had to be something related to the women of Iraq.

This year, 4,000 women ran for electoral office in Iraq.

4,000. Lemme post that one more time: 4,000.

That is a lot of women taking a stand to make a change. Holy crap. If American women would rally in those numbers for a seat in office, think of the change that would happen.
