Welcome to the blog that focuses on the Nineteenth Amendment. I am a woman who is proud of her heritage. For this blog, I am focusing on my gender. I am from the lineage of strong women.
My great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, is where my strength evolved. Queen Victoria picked cotton. Here I present as a woman with much to offer to our country's fabric because of ancestry sacrifices.
I write to carry on a legacy of women who dared not to be afraid. My grandmother relocated from Georgia for a better life. My mother sacrificed so that I may enjoy the benefits of an education. The one thing we all have in common is that we are unknown.
Because of the women before me, I recognized an opportunity to create change. Too many stories about women are written with the narrative mid-survival with a hand reaching for government assistance.
I've been very intentional in all my preparations to return with the message I made it to beyond still standing. The year 2012 was the point of no return. My lineage is too powerful to become the generation to shy away from what is true and correct. The facts will reveal injustices.
I am here to present an argument so that no other woman or nurse is forced on the path I've traveled so many one hundred years later. The time is now to address legislation affording women a legitimate seat at the table.
My goal is to readdress the 19th Amendment.
My story starts with fighting back.
