    I AM PROUD OF YOU!! I DON’T LIVE OR VOTE IN SOUTHWEST IOWA ANY MORE.. I COULD TELL YOU STORIES ABOUT THE ELECTIONS FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF A YOUNG IINTELIGENT FEMALE GOING THROUGH K-12. NEEDLESS TO SAY EVEN THOUGH I WAS TAUGHT THAT CHILDREN ARE TO BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD ALONG WITH “DON’T BE TOO SMART. THE BOYS WON’T LIKE YOU”. ALL THESE 50 PLIS YEARS AND THOSE WORDS STILL RING IN MY HEAD. I REMEMBER MY 4TH GRADE TEACHER TAKING A POLL IN CLASS AT BANDCROFT SCHOOL. THEN TELLING US HOW WE SHOULD GO HOME AND TELL OUR PARENTS TO VOTE. I ALSO USED TO DO “ENTERTAINMENT” FOR MEETINGS ETC. HELD IN THE AREA. TWO THINGS REALLY STAND OUT IN MY MEMORY. 1) A HIGH SCHOOL REUNION- A BALLET CALLED ?BOWRY BUMS” MY COSTUME WAS A BLACK BALLET LEOTARD AND TIGHTS WITH BLACK BALLET SLIPPERS AND A BOWLER BLACK HAT. COMMENT WAS THAT I WAS DRESSED INDECENTLY. ANOTHER TIME WAS A REPUBLICAN WOMEN’S MEETING IN DES MOINES. I HAD TO SET IN THE BACK SEAT WITH MY CHAPARONE AND KEEP MY MOUTH APPROPRIATELY SHUT WHILE I LISTENED TO TALK THAT I DIDN’T THINK WAS VERY NICE. FEMALES WERE SUPPOSE TO BE QUIET AND OF SEVICE. I DIDN’T HAVE ANY ROLE MODELS THAT WOULD REALLY SPEAK OUT AS AN EXAMPLE. MY 8TH GRADE TEACHER POINTED OUT THAT THE HOMECOMING QUEEN AND HER COURT WERE ALL MARRIED. I WANTED TO BE A BALLERINA BUT WAS TOLD NICE GIRLS DIDN’T JOIN THE MILITARY OR BECOME ENTERTAINERS. SO IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO IT; BE PREPARED BECAUSE WE HAVE TURNED BACK THE CLOCK EVEN FARTHER THAN WHEN I GREW UP.
