This poem reminds me of how strong women are. Is there anything that we cannot do or overcome? I mean, just being able to birth another life is in itself a testament to the strength of the female species.
During slavery, it was phenomenal women that lead the Underground Railroad. Later, other phenomenal women would fight for the right to vote. Today, phenomenal women are on the front lines in battle, in the boardroom, and in the courtroom. It is also apparent that these same phenomenal women bear the responsibility of raising and teaching future generations.
In other countries, phenomenal women are fighting for the right to work, drive, and vote. They are being beaten. They are having acid thrown in their faces. They are being kidnapped from schools and sold into slavery.
In spite of this, phenomenal women are running the country…the world even.
We are mothers, daughters, sisters, and aunts. We are teachers, homemakers, business women, entrepreneurs, nurses, doctors, lawyers, soldiers, students, and politicians. We are making lunches and passing laws. We are setting broken bones and mitigating losses. We are giving exams and building empires. We are protecting our families and protecting our country.
Undoubtedly we are all phenomenal women.
