Month: November 2020
“… It is celebrated on November 25, the date that commemorates the brutal murder of the Mirabal sisters in 1960. The date also marks the 16 days of activism against gender violence that precede World Human Rights Day on December 10 …”
Women are amazing.You say nothing and they understand everything.
They say everything and you don’t understand anything.
This is how women have ruled the world since the beginning of time and from the beginning of time.
There are the simple ones, the sweetly naive ones, there are the complicated ones, indomitable like hurricanes.
Whatever nuance their character has, they are the ones who make the difference.
With their looks full of words, with their hearts full of bruises.
Yes, when a woman becomes a female it starts to make a difference.
You are not born a woman you become, charm, love, courage.
They are made of smiles that know how to swallow tears,
of silences where their deepest feelings scream and
of moments when they don’t want to be understood,
they just want to be loved.
With the right time and the right shoes they can do anything,
where do they find the strength? …
they are women …
is the strength to find them …
from a letter of
On the night Vice President-elect Kamala Harris made history, she recognized the long battle women had faced for the right to vote and to break into the highest ranks of American politics — and said that “every little girl watching” across the country now knows they can do so, too.
Harris was the fourth woman to appear on a major political party’s presidential ticket, following Democratic vice presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, Republican No. 2 Sarah Palin in 2008 and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. She is the first to win.
Harris recognized a new generation of women who cast their ballots in 2020, and remembered her mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, who immigrated to the United States from India as a young woman.
“I’m thinking about her and about the generations of women — Black women, Asian, White, Latina and Native American women — throughout our nation’s history who have paved the way for this moment tonight,” she said. “Women who fought and sacrificed so much for equality, liberty and justice for all, including the Black women, who are too often overlooked, but so often prove that they are the backbone of our democracy.”
“Tonight I reflect on their struggle, their determination, and the strength of their vision to see what can be, unburdened by what has been. And I stand on their shoulders,” Harris said. “And what a testament it is to Joe’s character that he had the audacity to break one of the most substantial barriers that exist in our country and select a woman as his vice president.”
