What a wonderful country I live in to have all the freedom the USA offers. July 4th is a great reminder to honor our country and all the people before us who have paved the path for us to live this amazing freedom.
As a woman, I think about the great stride made in my lifetime where I have more freedom.
During college, woman couldn’t wear pants. Today, woman can mostly wear anything they desire.
75 percent of women 25 to 54 years old are working, up from around 40 percent in the 1950s.
There is more equality in the workplace for women. We still don’t have equal number of women in the upper management positions or equal pay we hope to have someday. Wow, what freedom and opportunities we do have compared to when I entered the workplace.
Men are sharing caretaking and housekeeping tasks in greater numbers than when I first was married.
This holiday allowed me to take a moment and reflect on the freedom I feel. It was neat to feel the progress made in my lifetime. I am blessed to be part of this great land of opportunities and freedom.
