What gave me the hope that I desperately needed today.

My 5yo daughter has never showed interest in my magazines but something about the 25th anniversary issue of @WIRED has captured her attention. Tonight as part of her bedtime reading, she picked the magazine.
As she is paging through the magazine asking me questions I notice the amazing number of women that are featured. She definitely notices too. She asks me about many of them, and I tell her their stories.
Then we get to the story about #inclusivity in technology. I help her understand what that means. Then I tell her that I have had the honor of working with @jennylayfluffy. She asks about the picture of Jenny's hands.…
I tell her that many people have deafness and use #asl to communicate, that Jenny is signing the word "lead". She asks what that means. I help her remember what it means to be the line leader in pre-k. AndI tell her that she can also lead a company, a city, or even a country.
And I'm suddenly filled with hope. My 5yo is growing up in a world where she is seeing women, people of color, #LBGTQ, and people with disabilities featured in print, film and TV. She will never know any different.
There is a lot of ugliness in the world today, but it is the strength of those that are trailblazing today who are creating the world my daughter and son will live in. I thank you for that.
Thank you for having the strength to share your pain and suffering as well. Know that future generations will not stand for such abuse because of your strength. Know that in this time of darkness and despair you are giving hope #DrChristineBlaseyFord
My daughter gives me hope. She went to sleep with the magazine, I know that she will be dreaming of the limitless possibilities for her in the years to come - because of the path that the women before her paved.
