As women in the western world, we tend to forget how hard we fought, and are still fighting to maintain our "personhood" status. Just taking a look around at some other not-to-be-named countries where women have little or no rights at all. They can't drive, be in public without a male escort, have to cover themselves from head to toe, are sold by their fathers or brothers into slavery, can legally be beaten, mutilated or murdered, are thrown into prison if they are raped, and so much more.
Yes, we often take our freedoms and rights for granted, but it wasn't always so, I received an email recently that reminded me that my right to vote, hold public office, have a life of my own, and more comes from great sacrifices made by brave women of the past.
It wasn't until 1920 that women were granted the right to vote. To get that right, women suffered humiliation, prison, and physical abuse for decades. I sometimes forget that when my grandmother married, she was the property of her husband and voting was a man's game.
