I’m wondering if my thinking about women working together makes any sense. If I am to make a statement now, it’s not hopeful and optimistic. Everyone in the family acts loving and hopeful. Behind the scenes it isn’t like that at all. Patriarchy has deep roots, even to the point where it appears normal. Many women now are waking up.

The insiders and outsiders agree on one point. People now of many genders are all over the map on issues that may once have appeared hopeless. I want to sit on a rocking chair on a porch and watch the sunset. I have supported the cause in many ways.

I no longer look to other women in my family. They have their own ideas and empty heads. Let them do what they want. I don’t necessarily agree, but who cares? I did my best.

And my best someday will result in something beyond my wildest dreams. The suffrage movement wasn’t monolithic. The momentum started with an introduction between two individuals who eventually became collaborators in an effort that many said would be “impossible” to achieve.
