“The America that allowed slaves DIED. The America that said a woman’s vote wasn’t as relevant and important and useful as a mans DIED. The America that legislated that two people of different races falling in love was an offensive abomination DIED. So today, another version of America is dying. The America we knew is terminal. It is not dead yet but the tides of change cannot be quelled or quieted or filibustered or bullied away. America is changing -– just as it always has, just as it was meant to.”
Women showed up to vote. They showed up early and they showed up strong.
And not only that — women *my age* showed up to vote today.
Our great grandmothers fought for the right to vote.
Our grandmothers fought for the right to work outside the home.
Our mothers fought for the right to be treated with respect.
Don’t pick a fight with us.
Thank you thank you thank you
