LADIES FIRST

FOR SO LONG WOMEN HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED SECOND CLASS NOTHING BUT SERVANTS, MAIDS AND CHILD BEARERS.

BUT NO MORE WOMEN BEGAN TO VIEW THEMSELVES AS RESPECTABLE AND OPINIONATED WOMEN.

WITH MORE THAN A PHYSIQUE OR A SKILL FOR COOKING BUT WOMEN WHO HAD A BUSINESS SENSE AND THE BRAINS TO BECOME ANYTHING THEY WANT TO BE.

FOR MORE THAN 2 CENTURIES WOMEN HAVE OVERCOME MANY OBSTACLES WHILE TRYING TO BE WIVES AND MOTHERS AS WELL.
