...
Many endured hate, abuse, social persecution and jail.
For them, their cause was just and not open to fail.
Remembered well now, at the time they carried a heavier weight.
Too often they faced ignorance, power lust and hate.
...
Let's not forget Alice Paul in our desire to share
problem women in history who helped everyone everywhere. 
Well educated, Alice had a Bachelors, Masters, PhD, Law degree and LLM.
Beaten by police and sentenced to hard labor, her resolve was not weakened by them.  
...
More recently, to the many problem women and men today, we owe a debt.
For all their efforts, sacrifices and hilarious signs, you can bet
without their valiant actions, let's be frank,
fairness and equality for all will be much harder. These "problems" we must thank.
...
Help when and where you can but never give in.
For this is a noble struggle and one we must win.
And don't worry in your efforts about being a little blistery.
Keep at it and may we all become problems in history!

”Grandmother, are women people?
I really want to know.”
In her questioning heart I saw myself
so many years ago.

It’s good she has this query
for it will deeply affect her life.
Knowing the answer can bring peace.
Not knowing - internal strife.

Given the condition of the world
and conflicting messages of today,
if this question is left unanswered
she could easily lose her way.

I gently explained, “My dear,
you have ahead of you a challenging task.
But if you search diligently you will find
the answer to the question you ask.

Don’t be surprised at negative reactions
to your searching and being willing to hear.
Truth seekers produce in many,
angry frustration and fear.

As you search for knowledge and wisdom,
encourage others to also ask and find.
This is one matter in which the world
should not remain mute an blind.

On your journey may you unlock
the secrets to a better world for all.
May you also become more compassionate
and raise others up, rather than let anyone fall.

You are a good person, my precious one
and your questioning heart is right.
My hope and love go with you
as you seek this most crucial light.”
