You'll remember everything about the day when you reveled in your own strength, the power of your own spirit.
Whether I support Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton is ultimately unimportant; what is important is my right and ability to choose in the first place. Of all people, Steinem and Albright should have understood this.
