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

A Series of Fallopian Tubes


[View All on One Page]

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. Actually, no, it’s not particularly surprising that people would leave reviews praising Mizuno Women’s Wave Rider 16 Running Shoes for their ability to “outrun [the] patriarchy.” This is the Internet, after all.

But it’s still fun.
