Seven Brief Thoughts...on women and power

 October 2018

A hundred years ago when my mother was born, women did not yet have the right to vote.

I was born a mere 24 years after women gained the right to vote.

I’ve voted in every election since I was old enough. When I was out of town at college, I voted by absentee ballot.

Now, 98 years after women were granted the right to vote, we still do not have political and workplace power equal to men.

I hope to live long enough that women will not have to march in the streets to be heard.

I hope to live long enough to see the glass ceiling broken with the election of a female president.

This is our country and each one of us has not only the right but the responsibility to VOTE!
