International Womens' Day

An old friend posted this today in celebration of International Womens' Day. In it Maya Angelou speaks of the capacity of the human spirit to rise in the face of oppression, hurt, fear, loss...  

The last two lines go:

'I am the hope and the dream of the slave
And so naturally, there I go risin'

I wonder about our mothers, grandmothers, great, great great grandmothers.  What did they dream for us?
