Have you read The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes? My mother read it to me when I was little and it’s one of my favorites. When she read it to me, I think she was saying:

“Women can do anything men can do.” Even if they sorta accidentally went and had a whole bunch of babies. Women can compete, no, outdo men in the workplace. But they might need some kick-ass shoes to do it. So, be a good mom, be a good example, give your kids responsibility and freedom, and never give up on your dreams.

I read this to my kids now, and I cry every time.

You go girl.
