Bette Midler’s Hollywood career spans over five decades, and throughout that, she has always voiced her opinions on societal issues. This time around, she has again chosen to stand for women’s rights. Midler has joined the long list of celebrities who have expressed their disapproval of the US Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade verdict.
Recently, the actress resorted to Twitter to criticize the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Her main aim has been Clarence Thomas. She also discussed the threats to women’s rights in the present political climate.
Midler’s recent tweet sent a strong message of awareness for women. She described in her post that modern-day politics treat women as nothing less than objects of reproduction.
WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us “women” anymore; they call us “birthing people” or “menstruators”, and even “people with vaginas”! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!
It’s apparent that Bette Midler is a staunch feminist, and she won’t stop until her message is heard by everyone. Her concerns about the ‘erasure’ of women from society appear to be extremely serious. Hopefully, she does something about it as well. You can check out her tweets below.
