Women’s rights have always been a controversy when brought up as a topic of conversation. Yet, I could see the light as generations progress.
Every decade, women have changed the world. From Oprah Winfrey to Hillary Clinton, there are well- respected and successful women that have molded women to what they are today. Women have made a name for themselves in almost every business.
Literature: Emily Dickinson; J.K. Rowling; Stephanie Meyer;;
TV/Film: Audrey Hepburn; Angelina Jolie; Meryl Streep; Elizabeth Taylor; Marilyn Monroe
Music: Beyonce; Whitney Houston; Celine Dion; Billie Holiday; Adele
Politics: Hillary Clinton; Sarah Palin; Angela Merkel; Margaret Thatcher; Clara Barton; Malala Yousafzai
Journalism: Christiane Amanpour; Diane Sawyer; Barbara Walters; Linda Greenhouse
I am definite I am missing many wonderful women who have helped this gender flourish and make the world a better place, but the women that I have listed above have dedicated their lives to what they love and have shown the world all of their gifts and talents. So can we.
Yet, I am not going to sugarcoat things. There is still a lot of work to do concerning rights and respect for our gender.
Women have always been an object to the dominant gender, males. It roots back thousands of years back and can be visibly seen and obvious today as well.
Unfortunately, there are still women in other countries around the world who are still gaining rights that first world female citizens have gained.
We need to step up to society and prove that we have a brain, a mind, a world of creativity… and not just boobs and an ass. We could do it, girls.
This generation needs to continue the tradition of exposing our God- given knowledge and talents to the world.
We’re more than just a pretty face.

Break Free Lyrics:
If you want it, take it
I should have said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can’t pretend anymore
I only want to die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
I don’t wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I’ve become who I really am
This is the part when I say I don’t want it
I’m stronger than I’ve been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can’t resist it no more
