Throughout history brave, loud, revolutionary women have made it possible for us to function in society as we do today – we have the right to vote, we have jobs and families, and we have just as much if not more education than our male counterparts. But the women before us who weren’t afraid to dream big – and sometimes dangerously –have made this possible, and for that the Women’s Caucus celebrated Women’s History Month in March.
But it must also be recognized that our roles in society are not somehow diminished now that our rights have been expanded upon. Now is the time for a new group of people — women and men, young and old, educated and progressive — to come together for a greater future. We must fight to keep the rights and privileges that we have, and gain those that have not yet been gifted to us. And because of this we asked our peers on campus, “How Will YOU Make History?”
We had dry erase boards and markers at our table in Turlington for people to proclaim their dreams, whether big or small. Answers ranged from personal promises to be the very best individual possible, to altruistic endeavors, and dreams of being part of a presidency that represents the interests that are most important to us as Democrats and as individuals.
We hope to one day be celebrating the history you all will undoubtedly make.
