On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than one hundred words per day, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial. This can’t happen here. Not in America. Not to her.
Soon women are not permitted to hold jobs. Girls are not taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words each day, but now women have only one hundred to make themselves heard.
For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
This is just the beginning…not the end.
Quotes from Vox
“Think about waking up one morning and finding you don’t have a voice in anything.”
“Everything lately seems to be a choice between degrees of hate.”
“You can’t protest what you don’t see coming.”
