A spokeswoman for Vice President of the United Stated Joe Biden told me Friday that our scrappy kid from Scranton does not have time to talk with me on the air for 10 minutes today or tomorrow about the Lackawanna County Friendly Sons of St. Patrick dinner, where Biden is scheduled to be the featured speaker.
Tuesday's annual event is the 110th gathering of this gang of well-heeled, well-connected men of means and privilege – and the third time for Biden - who exclude women unless they are serving heaping plates of ham and cabbage to the men.
Biden will likely share the elevated VIP table with U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, my senator and neighbor who lives down the hill from me in the hometown we share, the town of Biden's birth.
Like Biden and Casey, the Friendly Sons refuse to talk with me. I've been fighting their discrimination against women for about 25 years and have reached out to them as I reached out to Biden and Casey.
My argument is simple. As a descendant of an Irish immigrant Scranton coal miner I want women to share the same American Dream that welcomed my grandfather. I want women to have the same equal opportunity that continues to draw immigrants to our small piece of the world.
But women are denied that opportunity at the dinner. Even female political candidates are barred. I recently spoke about the Friendly Sons dinner with a woman who is running for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. She cannot attend and campaign, network, shake hands, develop her voter base or make friends and influence people the way male candidates can and will.
Male candidates always show up to campaign. That strikes me as particularly unfair – maybe even illegal. I wanted to ask Biden – as I tried to ask Casey - if he would help me fight for women's rights. But Biden can't find the time.
I understand why the law allows private clubs for men and women and why religious groups can legally discriminate against women. I support women's colleges and don't want to open the Girl Scouts to boys.
But I do want to open the world of business and politics to equal opportunity for women. That's why I wrote this proclamation and handed it out on the street as I picketed Casey's Scranton office last week with a seven-foot shamrock-shaped protect sign that quoted Casey's big lie.
If Biden and Casey won't join my fight maybe you will.
We will be better for it if you do.
Proclamation of Equal Opportunity
The sacred 1916 proclamation of Irish freedom begins with the words "Irishmen and Irishwomen." The British government sentenced about 50 of those women to die for their part in the Easter Rising.
So as we prepare to celebrate St. Patrick's Day we must respectfully pay tribute to the Irish women who helped shape the immigrant legacy and the American dream of our ancestors.
Freedom matters. Equal opportunity matters. Women matter.
Yet here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, women matter far less than men. And one of the worst offenders of gender discrimination is U.S. Senator Bob Casey, an Irish-American who should know better. That's why I'm picketing Casey's office here in Scranton. As a male chauvinist Paddy's pig Casey wields great power to help rather than hurt. That's why I was proud to hear Casey recently tell the world in Oslo, Norway, that "women's rights are non-negotiable."
But Casey is not telling the truth. In fact Casey will join Vice President of the United States Joe Biden – a Scranton native – on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, for the sexist, segregationist Lackawanna County Friendly Sons of St. Patrick annual dinner, a male-only gathering of about 1,500 of the most powerful male leaders of business, politics and law. Three sitting federal judges in Scranton are former Friendly Sons presidents.
No women need apply. Women and dogs keep out.
I asked Casey for a meeting to try to change his mind, but he refused to see me. I asked for a statement but he ignored my emails. So now I march up and down for freedom, for equal rights and for all of us who value fairness and justice. We must sometimes take a public stand. We must always stand on principle. We must never allow even the most privileged and powerful to oppress and subjugate in our name.
