I'm so glad that I'm not the only woman who feels this way, and relieved that those who walked before me paved the way for the opportunities that I do have, which many women in this world still do not. Our fight is still long from over, and the fight to be independent, self-sufficient, strong, independent, and ultimately free from oppression and abuse is still a fight we face, even in so-called free countries. When does it end? When religion ends, that's when. How can we become equals? When we are no longer under the fists of men who would seek to control and diminish our freedoms.
