As a woman, I am one who is very appreciative of the rights I have. I know that throughout history, when it comes to the rights of women, those rights came with a price. They are such rights as the right to vote, which is something that many women fought so hard for us to have today.
I find that the courage that the women who fought for the rights I have as a woman today, helped to build the stepping stones to the strong women in my family. I mean, when it comes to the women in my family, I find that there are a lot of strong willed, independent women who are women I love and look up to.
With my great grandma, she was a woman who received her Masters in English, which in her time was considered a bit taboo for a woman to do. Her daughter, my grandma, went on to become the first in her sorority to come from a working class family, to then receive a business degree from Indiana University. After receiving her degree she became executive director of the Wilmette Girl Scout Council.
These two amazing women created stepping stones for other women in our family, like my own mom who is a English Professor, and who, along with my dad, ran a theater company for 20+ years, my aunt who is a Art Curator for New Mexico, my sister who is a Nurse Practioner, and myself who went from a career in nursing to running a online journal where I am able to work from home and create my own business. Which I see gives us the strength and courage we run on to not let anyone tell us we cant.
Over the years I have learned that the will of the own women in my family is something that they were able to stand up for due to the actions of other women who believed that equality is something we all deserve and fought to get and won, but won at a price.
This will of women is what encouraged their story to be shared and told over and over again, and what also inspired the movie, Suffragette. Right now in theaters across the country you can go and watch the movie Suffragette, where you can watch a movie that is based on the struggles and history that women faced. And to help show support and encourage everyone to see the movie Suffragette when it comes to a theater near you, I will be giving one of my amazing readers their own Suffragette prize pack.
