Isn't it amazing that not too long ago there was a time where my son could have voted but I could not. It is crazy to think that this once was the norm. I am so grateful to all those brave women who stood up and fought for our right to vote.
I feel very lucky to have grown up around men who never let me feel like I couldn't do something just because I was a female. I also have an amazing husband who joined me and supported me by combining our names instead of me sacrificing mine. This felt like my small act of rebellion against a world I know to be unequal.
I feel ashamed that I do not know enough about the women who have made my life possible or the women still fighting for our rights even today. This is definitely something I hope to change this year.
I know our fight is not over. I know one of my roles is to educate and bring up my son in the knowledge that women are equal to men.
