I haven't called myself a "girl" in a long time, but I'm so fired up about today's presidential election that I can't help singing along with Alicia Keys.
Most of all, I can't stop thinking about the girls on fire of a century ago--the suffragists, those women with plenty of ovarios who marched, got beaten, harassed, thrown in jail for daring to demand that women be allowed to vote.
Imagine, women on hunger strikes for wanting to do what we now take for granted and many don't do at all.

“My vote doesn’t count.”
“The candidates don’t reflect my views.”
