I was in my teens when the last woman’s movement came into full swing. I say last because women have been fighting for equality for some time. There will always be room for improvement, but the truth is, women have made great strides in modern America. Disagree? Well consider this. When I interviewed for a job at a major insurance company at the age of 19, I was asked if I was pregnant (I wasn’t) and whether or not I used birth control, and if I did, what kind of birth control I used! Mmm… Maybe they thought a big belly would get in the way of the file drawer.
The purpose of today’s blog isn’t to tackle the dicey subject of women’s rights but to celebrate the women who blazed the trail before us and made the path a little easier to follow. If you’ll clink on the toptenz link (I love this site, by the way. He comes up with really interesting stuff) you’ll see that some of our
wackiest most interesting trailblazers lived more than two-hundred years ago. They did what they wanted to and didn’t look to the rest of the world for approval.
So ladies, be beautiful, smart, and fearless. And have some fun while you’re at it.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
and have a Great Week!
