she woke up with hope

Favorite Movie in 2010 || Iron Jawed Angels

“You ask me to explain myself. I just wonder, what needs to be explained? It should be very clear. Look into your own heart. I swear to you, mine’s no different. You want a place in the trades and professions where you can earn your bread. So do I. You want some means of self expression. Some way of satisfying your own personal ambitions. So do I. Want a voice in the government in which you live. So do I. What is there to explain?”

This is a movie I think every woman should see. It’s a reminder of how hard women have to fight for their rights, then and now. So many women have to suffer to make change happen and this movie made me proud to be a woman. We have a history of strength and courage, of rising in the face of adversity. I admire the hell out of Alice Paul and all she did for women, she put the cause above herself. This movie is really amazing, there’s no other way to describe it.
