A woman’s point of view is very important today

Ginger Hernandez believes it is important that women are in positions of leadership because it has not always been that way. In the past, a woman’s point of view has not always been considered. Hernandez, who is vice president of Madison County High School’s Junior class, wants it known that a woman’s point of view is “extremely” important.”
“I’m not saying that a man’s point of view is not important,” she said. “But nine times out of 10 the men have more power than a female. For example women could not vote, or work many years ago, but that is not the case now.”
Adversity is still contentious, especially when it comes to many issues in America. For example, in politics, sports, and even when dealing with the economy, Hernandez acknowledges.
“In the past there has always been some adversity against women working, voting, and even purchasing items,” she said. “Sometimes there has been adversity with them trying to speak their voice.”
In addition to Hernandez being very involved in making decisions for the junior class, she is also a cheerleader, has been on the honor roll consistently, is a member of Take Stock In Children, and in Beta Club, to name a few.
