Shattering the Glass Ceiling

glassshatterersI’m taking a short but sweet moment to reflect upon a really important historical moment for me and every woman young and old.  Hmmm

Tonight Hillary Rodham Clinton added another job title to her resume:

  • Daughter
  • Lawyer
  • Women’s & Children’s Rights Advocate
  • Wife
  • Mother
  • First Lady of Arkansas
  • First Lady of the United States of America
  • Senator for the State of New York
  • Secretary of State
  • Democratic Nominee for President of the United States

A woman, not just any woman, a woman who has had to crawl through the muck and mud of Washington politics while being hosed down with gasoline and simultaneously dodging lit matches, first as a supportive spouse, then a member of the team and finally as the top dog poised to shatter the final and thickest glass ceiling, has earned the nomination of her party for President of the United States of America.

It’s a proud moment in history that carries with it the irony that, if she is elected, she will earn the exact same pay as if a man were elected to the office and will have begun making good on her first campaign promise, “gender pay equality.”
