I will not say that I am happy with the results. When I looked at my ballot and thought of Trump, his words of misogyny ran through my mind. And, yet, I vehemently disagree with some of Hillary Clinton's stances on political issues. Still, the thought of having a woman so close to the white house made me extremely happy and hopeful for our nation and woman's equality. I hope to see a female president by the end of my lifetime, and one that I might be able to more passionately support in her political views. But, for now and for the sake of our country, I will support Donald Trump for the good of the American people. Woman's representation in the political arena made huge strides last night with several elected senators and congress women, but we have a long way to go. The battle for social change does not end here... it simply shifts with the tide of our nation. And that nation has chosen to support Trump.
In conclusion, I leave with these words as the salve of my own disappointment and millions of others regarding the image of women that our nation has chosen to condone...
