Girl's Aren't Weak

I grew being told I was weak or dumb just because I’m female. In 3rd grade, I tried to run for student council but lost. People told me I had the best speech. “If I had the best speech, why didn’t I win?” I asked. “Because you’re a girl and girls are too sensitive.” They all responded. Really? Just because I’m a girl I didn’t win. Being able to feel emotions is a trait of a good leader. Girls tend to listen to both sides of the argument. They listen but still, we’re seen as weak. Why? Just why? I told people I wanted to become the first women president, they told me to get my head out of the clouds. If you asked me in 3rd grade what I would change about the world, I wouldn’t ask for world peace or to stop global warming, I would ask for equality, to be treated equally. I want to live in a world where I don’t have to carry a pocket knife everywhere or look under the car when I come back from the store so I don’t get kidnapped. I want my kids to live in a world where boys and girls can all be seen the same. I don’t really have faith in humanity but I’m still hopeful. People should be treated the same yet they aren’t. With a little hope and a little strength, I think we might be able to make it happen.
