Still Learning To See

Women’s Equality Day

 

I missed getting this posted yesterday, in honor of Women’s Equality Day which celebrates the passing of the 19th amendment to the constitution in 1920. My mom and her sisters, my grandmothers, my aunts—none of them were born at a time when women could vote. For many women in the world today voting is still not possible or difficult.

More than ever we need women leading this old world which we men continue to make such a colossal mess of.

    I am blown away by the thought that mom and her sisters were born in a time in which women could not vote, and that our grandmothers could not vote until they were almost 40! I am humbled too by your wonderful perspective that indeed we need more women as leaders in this world…and I second it! Thanks, brother!.
