Generally speaking, I am not one to push my political views onto anyone else as I feel political opinions, much like religious preference, are best kept to oneself if you want to keep friends. But as today is the day to place your vote, I think it’s important to send a small message out there to the ladies to go out there and make your voice heard. It wasn’t so long ago that women were DENIED the right to vote and as astounding as that may seem to those who’ve always enjoyed the right to vote, we are not so far from losing all the ground women have gained over the last 100 years. There are people out there who support the dark ages of women’s rights and would prefer to keep women pregnant and in the kitchen, slaves to men and deemed inferior.
Our vote is the equivalent of a resounding, “Hell no!” to all those who would dare to put their feet on us again. Women are complex creatures with the capacity to be tender and nurturing and in the same breath, fierce and strong. Don’t let anyone silence your voice. In deference to all the women who paid for your right to vote with their blood and tears, go make your mark. We owe it to our sisters, grandmothers, great-grandmothers and daughters. Change is possible but you cannot sit by the sidelines and expect others to do the work for you.
Okay, I promise that’s the one and only political post.
Happy voting, peeps.
