I turned on CSPAN this morning to watch history being made. For the first time in the history of our nation a woman took the position of Speaker of the House. That woman was Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, CA. She is now in control of the House and is in line for the Presidency right after the Vice President.
Whether you like Pelosi or not, you can help but see how far we’ve come. When I grew up in the 1970s, women were moving into the business sector with great zeal. They were scoffed at, ridiculed, and told to “go back to the kitchen”.
Women kept on going. They continue to grab occupational opportunities and moving into sectors never before opened to them. And, now a woman is the #3 most powerful person in the United States Government.
I look at the young woman coming up today. They can reach for the stars if they want! The opportunities are all around them. They only have to work hard to get where they want to go.
This is a proud day for woman and a proud moment in American history. Way to go Pelosi!
