Standing With Wendy by Ana Mardoll
Like many people who became absorbed in the events that occurred in the Texas summer of 2013, I did not become actively involved until I heard about Wendy Davis' planned filibuster of Senate Bill 5. In the days leading up to the filibuster, while gathering and disseminating relevant news for my blog readers, I joked with other activists that Wendy Davis should spend her filibuster reading from Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale--a classic tale of reproductive rights being denied within a harmful patriarchal system--not realizing then that the Texas filibuster rules were not the "read-from-the-phone-book" filibuster rules popularized in movies like Mr. Smith Goes To Washington.

On the day of the filibuster, I watched Wendy Davis speak from start to finish, joining the ranks of what were later numbered to be 182,000 people watching the live video stream of the Texas Senate floor. From the confines of my home, I yelled along with the unruly mob, and I went to bed feeling like I had witnessed something truly amazing. And when I woke, I did so with the conviction that this had to be preserved in written words. I announced online that I was going to spend the next year transcribing the filibuster--a goal that soon grew to include the Senate and House amendment sessions on the bills that were reintroduced in the next special session--and within a matter of days over one hundred people had volunteered to help in this task.
