Regardless of who you support, if you care about human rights and feminism- this video that is said to be introducing Hillary Clinton tonight, is worth watching. It’s moving and it speaks to feminism and breaking barriers and the fact that young women for the first time in history may be able to truly visualize themselves as leaders of our nation. I know my mama told me that girls could be president someday but I never believed her growing up. I never saw a woman president. Finally, that may change.
Look, I know, Clinton has her flaws and I really don’t want this to turn into a political debate. She is not perfect. I know. Just please watch the video and listen to the words and remember how hard it is to break that glass ceiling and how far she has come. We stand on the shoulders of giants and we as women can almost, just barely, reach towards the top with our hammers in hand. Break that glass ceiling and make history.
“Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human’s rights- once and for all.”
Well, yeah, but it’s hard to feel so happy after, you know, some of her more, ah, enthusiastic supporters over the past 8 years. (I do wish they wouldn’t hold up Margaret Thatcher as a feminist icon.)
