Developing the 2022 drawing board was very interesting.  One thing that was extremely interesting in 2021 was the part of everything women played, we must face it 2020 and 2021 women stood out.  Let’s just look at some accomplishments.

Stacey Abrams

Stacey Abrams is fighting to create a Georgia where all our people can thrive and where all eligible voters can have their voices heard. Stacey Abrams is running for governor because she has a vision for Georgia where equality fosters prosperity and everyone has the chance to thrive.

Keisha Lance Bottoms

Keisha Lance Bottoms is the 60thMayor of Atlanta.

A daughter of Atlanta, Mayor Bottoms is committed to realizing her vision of One Atlanta – an affordable, resilient, and equitable Atlanta – which stands as a model city for both commerce and compassion.

A lifelong public servant, Mayor Bottoms is the only Mayor in Atlanta’s history to have served in all three branches of government, serving as a judge and City Council Member before being sworn in as Mayor. 

Leading with a progressive agenda focused on equity and affordable housing, Mayor Bottoms serves as Chair of the Community Development and Housing Committee and the Census Task Force for the United States Conference of Mayors.

Sojourner Truth 

May 29, 1851: A former slave turned abolitionist and women’s rights activist, Sojourner Truth delivers her famous “Ain’t I A Woman?” speech at the Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio. “And Ain’t I A Woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have plowed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And “Ain’t I A Woman?” I could work as much and eat as much as a man—when I could get it—and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? I have borne 13 children and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a woman?”

Contemporaneous reports of Truth’s speech did not include this slogan and quoted Truth in standard English. In later years, this slogan was further distorted to “Ain’t I A Woman?”, reflecting the false belief that as a formerly enslaved woman, Truth would have had a Southern accent. Truth was, in fact, a New Yorker.

Rosa Parks, Civil Rights, Equal Pay

Dec. 1, 1955: Black seamstress Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Ala. The move helps launch the civil rights movement.

Kamala Harris 

January 20, 2021Kamala Harris is sworn in as the first woman and first woman of color vice president of the United States. “While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” Harris said after getting elected in November. 

The daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, Harris served as California’s first Black female attorney general and won election to the U.S. Senate in 2016. She made her own unsuccessful presidential bid before being selected by former vice president Joe Biden as his running mate.
