Amazon Reviewers Praise the Patriarchy-Busting Power of Wendy Davis’ Filibuster Shoes

Everyone’s still buzzing over Texas State Senator Wendy Davis‘ epic filibuster in defense of a woman’s right to choose. For good reason, too. I hope it proves to be something that people remember—and talk about, and teach their kids about—for decades to come.

That enthusiasm has found a surprising outlet on the Amazon.com page for the bright red running shoes Davis wore while (literally) standing up for women’s rights for a grueling 11 hours.

Wendy Davis Filibusters Anti-Abortion Bill for 10 Hours Straight, Defeats It, Becomes Our Hero

The Texan senate made headline news yesterday when Senator Wendy Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat, filibustered an anti-abortion bill for ten hours without pause, sitting, or leaning on her desk.

With Davis’ incredible filibustering and the support of pro-choice protesters, the vote was pushed into the late hours of the night, which became the early hours of the morning, and eventually blurred the line between whether or not voting took place before or after midnight– a distinction which would define the success or failure of the legislation.
