Today we celebrate our VFA founder, Jacqui Ceballos, who is 94 years young. You can see her profile page here, which presents a sampling of some of the bold actions she took in the early days of the women’s movement.
Here, for example, is the prayer she recited during an action in Times Square – a mass for the supposed soul of male supremacy:
Our Mother, who art in heaven,
Sister we call thy name.
Our kitchen’s done, our nursery’s run,
On earth, and it isn’t heaven.
Give us the right to earn our bread,
and forgive our trespasses,
as we forgive men, who trespass against us.
And lead us not into subservience,
but deliver us from Adam.
For Thine is the Freedom, and the POWER,
and the GLORY, FOREVER!
Happy birthday, Jacqui!
