  12. Those brave women. It's only proper and fitting that a waltz is held in their honor.

  13. Very original haiku and image, Patti.
    Do you really think we have won...?
    Now we have to work at home and outside.
    My grandma had more rights and freedom than many "liberated" women nowadays, believe me. She died at 94, had 12 children and enjoyed life a lot.

  14. I think the struggle is still on...A woman has to suffer and pay a lot to achieve and enjoy her own rights ...

    any ways a thought provoking take on the prompt

    yes, you're so right - even where the movement first began I don't think the task is completed
