A Woman's Vote


I had no desire
to rewind the clock
to wear an apron
and lose my voice.

My vote counted.

Mama Zen at Real Toads wanted us to state who won
the election in twenty words or less.

... I don't wear an apron. Don't even like to cook. Not even cookies. ha

Very cute, though. (after I rolled my eyes :)

You said it, Susie. Wearing aprons and having no voice is not what women want in the 21st century.
Well done!

Most definitely! And I hope the world and the nation heard us!

Mama Zen said...

Amen, sister! But, I look pretty cute in an apron . . .

For sure!! Nice reminder of how it used to be...and not really that long ago either!!

This election cycle, we got a glimpse of just how extreme the right wing agenda is for women.
And we overwhelmingly rejected that worldview.
