Kids driving car 2

A Story

Do you remember when we were kids? How we were equal and everything was possible. Then somewhere along the way we were told we were different and that some things were for for boys and some were for girls. I was a girl AND I was told I could do anything. I wasn't afraid of anything, maybe because of my parents' support. Until one day in my 40s when I was told I wasn't worth as much as a man and I couldn't do what I wanted to do. All of a sudden I heard 100s of stories just like mine, and I thought - this can't be right, I have to do something. Men and women are not the same, but we are equal.
