100 Years from Yesterday

Imagine what today’s world would be like
If the Suffragettes had been three million strong?
100 years from yesterday

Fewer men empowered
More women in power
Fewer fears

Class, origin, race,
and gender fraternity
Academic and
work equality

Personal liberty
Mental sanity
Global serenity

The day after Trump’s inauguration
Three million women marched in protest
Across the land

In every city
In rural towns
In unity

Thanks to 3 million 21st Century Suffragettes
Yesterday’s historical moment is what the future can be

They will stay strong
No fear
No doubt
And they will fight on

For Equality
For Liberty
For Sanity
For Serenity

For Humanity

For our Daughters and for our Sons

Michel Bordeau

My name is Michel Bordeau, aka Area Frenchman. I am a Therapist and an Education Coach in private practice in Atlanta. Born in France, I have spent half my life in the US. I am culturally French and academically American, so you can safely assume that I know a thing or two about love (gender respectful, validating, unconditional, non-threatening) and the pleasures of life (many friends, much cheese, little w(h)ine). When I don't blog about mansplaining, teen assertiveness, guru shaming, toxic work environments and toxic people, motherhood, mindful parenting, immigrant entrepreneurs, bipolar disorder and body dysmorphic disorder, I dedicate my time speaking about the lessons I have learned as a therapist and a coach. I am the host of Le Kindness Couch on Youtube. I created this channel to demonstrate that today's therapeutic modalities are kind, validating, and solution-focused. We don't read mind or blame your mom for everything.

    “For our daughters and for our sons”

    Exactly this. It’s not just for the women; it’s for the men too. It’s for the betterment of society as a whole.

    It’s such an honor to be part of a new generation of suffragettes
