Women are person

It is said that there was a time and a place where women were not considered people.
It is said that a group of them rolled up their sleeves and prepared for the debate and the struggle.
And it is said that something was achieved.

Almost 3 years later I am back in Ottawa.
Yesterday I went through parliament again.
Yesterday I saw them again.
Yesterday they reminded me that they did their part.
Yesterday I felt proud again of their struggle.
Yesterday I conveyed my admiration.
But they told me that yesterday does not change the future, they told me that the battle must continue here and now.
That the day we stop to remember is because this is what we have achieved it.

For all those women who made us a person!

Ps. To my little daughter Elena, so that your generation only will have to remember.
