This election has us thinking a lot about leadership and how we, as adults, are now given the task of answering question about what’s happening in the world around us. It’s a heavy burden to decide how we frame these events—objectively or not—because what we say will no doubt influence how these young women and girls perceive events moving forward.
We hope to provide some guidance in the weeks ahead to help you prepare for the role you have to fulfill.
Remembering those who fought for our rights: During times of great stress, it’s wonderful to unite under the common perspective of history, namely Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Both suffragists who fought to secure the right to vote for women and African Americans.
Many in Rochester paid their respects to both of them on Election Day.
