When I lived in California, I lived in houses dominated by women. Always. So many rights enjoyed in California by those women, by us all, the norm, seemingly inalienable at the time and now so very threatened were argued into being by the recently deceased supreme court justice and lifelong fighter for equality, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Hers was a storied life and you'll find of course many well written and researched eulogies all over the web, but you know we don't really do that. Since our beginning, about every four years we delve into American politics and pretty much conclude that Americans need to go vote against the republican presidential candidate, was true of Mitt, McCain, was true of Trump, just as true of Trump now. That's about the best we do. So when someone so beloved Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies, we're not really qualified to speak and anyway would much rather the Notorious RBG speak for herself with just an idea to America way, way better...
"When I'm sometimes asked 'When will there be enough (women on the Supreme Court)?' and my answer is: 'When there are nine.' People are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that." Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
