Former First Lady Michelle Obama surprised users on social media this week when she referred to females as “womxn.”
“State lawmakers will have the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare,” she wrote last weekend.
“It’s been a tough couple of weeks since we saw the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion,” she wrote. “If it comes to pass, we may soon live in a country where millions of women — not to mention our children and grandchildren — lose the right to make decisions about their bodies and their health. Even if we knew the courts were heading toward this day, it doesn’t make the frustration, grief, and fear any less real.
“But we don’t have to stand idly by while others try to turn back the clock on progress,” she continued. “I’m so inspired by everyone out marching today. And I know that we’re going to see so many folks carrying this energy forward to the elections in November and in every election after that.”
