Letter to the Editor

For thousands of years women have been relegated to second tier status in world societies. Many cultures look at women as property of men that same way that cattle are considered men’s property. In Arab countries women are not allowed to drive cars to travel without the permission of male relatives and women who are raped are whipped and imprisoned so as not to bring dishonor on their male relatives. Here in America women are often taught to be submissive and to accept that they are inferior to men.

America is still the most powerful nation on the planet and the president of the United States becomes the world’s most powerful person. I believe that if a woman is elected president that it would change the way women see themselves throughout the world. I think it is time, for the first time in history, for a woman to be the most powerful person on the planet. It would send a message to little girls around the world that they have the same rights as men and that they can dream of becoming a great leader when they grow up just like little boys can do.
