No, no, I don’t mean fighting the Axis menace by building B-52s down at the local defense plant. Our mothers and grandmothers did that little thing, for which we owe them our everlasting thanks, honor and praise.
What I mean by We Can Do It, is this simple truth: Women can change the course of American government.
The first time I was eligible to vote for a candidate for President, I proudly and joyfully cast my ballot for George McGovern in 1972. It was a thrilling moment for me, even tho McGovern lost. Casting one’s vote as a citizen of the United States of America is an exhilarating act that everyone should experience. And keep experiencing, every time an election is held, for as long as we live. I have voted in every presidential election since 1972, and in practically every other election as well; even the local contests for county dog-catcher and street-sweeper.
If you are a woman who for whatever reasons has not voted very often in the past, or maybe has never voted at all, now is the time for you to step up and experience the great joy of being part of the American process. You have power. Your voice is important. Your vote is important. Wield your power!
Read this wonderful post at Rox Populi for examples of women who are making their voices heard and are powerful forces for change.
