“Though she be but little, she is fierce!” I consider this quote quite applicable to myself when I was a little girl. More than anything in the world, I wanted not only myself, but also my mother to have the right to vote. She was the single person in my life that I would trust with anything, and because of that I wanted her to have a say on what was happening in the world. The decisions that my parents made at the time, regardless if it was at home or at a polling site, would turn into my future; I just couldn’t fathom the idea of my mother not being part of that. Mothers have a way of knowing exactly what is right for their children, so I knew she had to be given the same opportunity as my father to vote. Furthermore, my mother, just like many of the other mothers, sisters, aunts, and daughters at the time, had a strong, intelligent voice, but just wasn’t being heard. As just a little girl, I had this immense passion for women to receive the right to vote, and before I was even 10 years old, that right was granted. Fortunately enough, a select group of brave women ignited this cause approximately 30 years before I was even born. I’ll never forget that women spent time in jail so that I could have the right to vote, and I don’t know how I could ever repay them. However, as a woman, I always make sure that I make it to the polls so that my voice is heard. I do this for my family and I, but also for the women who lived in silence for hundreds of years. It just doesn’t seem right to me when people don’t appreciate the sacrifices that were made so that they could live the lives that they do. Let me also mention that as a little girl, this was a learning period for me. What an educational and inspirational experience it was for me to understand the power of women at such a young age. There are just as many women in this world as there are men, and together we can make a difference. I can guarantee that throughout my whole life, I never once was controlled or dominated by a man because I learned the importance of my independence at a young age. You could have asked me then, and you could ask me now, but I’ll always tell you that women are the future. I stand by that and work towards bettering the women of the future because I know my daughters and granddaughters will bring things to this world that no man ever could. I certainly am not biased towards women, as I love all my children equally and support them all the same, however I can say that because I’m proud of the world they live in. My only remark for other women who may see this is to keep pushing forward, and never settle for anything less than perfection. Fortunately for me, I am fierce because of everything I experienced while I was little.
