The year is 2016, we live a global village, information is at our fingers tips, people have been to the moon and back, technology is the norm to an extent where the possibilities of innovation are end less.. . Yet my being an intelligent, confident, self aware, assertive beautiful woman is for some people still unfathomable.
How the same girl grows into a smart woman who excells at work relying only on her brains and not her long legs or pretty face.
Im still shocked that half of America, would rather vote in a candidate who unapologetically showed his ugly true colours over a capable woman. Granted she had made some mistakes in the past, but dnt we all? !
My daughter excells at everything she does, like so many little girls her age. Girls are taking centre stage both in academics and extra curriculum activities… And i intend to continue encouraging and supporting her to do even better.
I refuse to dumb myself down to stroke anyones ego. I refuse to tell my little girl she cnt do something she’s interested in because its supposed to be a preserve for boys..
Don’t get me wrong, was i raising a boy, I would teach him the same values and expose him to the same opportunities. Most of all teach him to respect others abilities and not to judge them based on their gender , race, religion,political affiliation or other demographic features.
I am capable of too much to just sit and look pretty!Our daughters’, our sisters, our mothers are capable of too much to just sit and look pretty.
……….. ….. my two cents. .. … …
