America has given women the right to vote through the 19th Amendment, yet there are still many obstacles that women of color face, specifically Black women. There has been a lack of representation in America’s political system, which does more harm than good for the future. In recent years, Black women have been rising to the top. But with these actions, comes inequity, racism, harassment, and many more devastating factors. Any given situation, Black women have to bear the most burdens and have the hardest lives to live.
Even though the odds are against them, Black women are tuning into their Blackness and chasing after their dreams, even with all the limitations. Nowadays, we see a lot more Black women holding political office and it’s inspiring. Racial inequality was measured to be more of a pressing issue than the economy; the economy combined with the wealth gap would have tied racial inequality at the top of issues in America (voted by Black women/other officials).
