(Re: Guest editorial ‘The tenacity and power of women’s speech,” TW, Oct. 18.) Thanks to the members of the UPS faculty for speaking up for “those who have been silenced.” Their commitment to be active in this process by voting and speaking up can make a difference. Fortunately, Washington Senators Cantwell and Murray have stood up as well and are champions of change for the better. We can all be inspired by these women, speaking up to our representatives in Congress, voting, and following up to make sure truth wins out and justice is championed.
