Opinion - We Don't Have to March to Prove Our Worth or Power

by Placerville Newswire / Jan 22, 2017 / comments

I am not a "disgrace to women" because I don't support the women's march.

I do not feel I am a "second class citizen" because I am a woman. I do not feel my voice is "not heard" because I am a woman. I do not feel I am not provided opportunities in this life or in America because I am a woman. I do not feel that I "don't have control of my body or choices" because I am a woman. I do not feel like I am " not respected or undermined" because I am a woman. 

I AM a woman. 

I can make my own choices. 

I can speak and be heard. 

I can VOTE.
