Geraldine Ferraro’s Passing

By ConcernedConservative on March 28, 2011

Geraldine, or Gerry, Ferraro passed away on Sunday. Although this woman was a member of the democratic party she made a very large impact for women in politics. She was the first female vice president candidate in out nation.

Her story is nothing short or inspiring. A classic rags to riches story in the American society. She was the daughter of Italian immigrants and her dad passed away when she was only 8 yeas old.

Despite hardships and trials she worked her way through law school and eventually became a congresswoman. She worked hard through her life to advocate social justice.

“Geraldine Anne Ferraro Zaccaro was widely known as a leader, a fighter for justice and a tireless advocate for those without a voice. To us, she was a wife, mother, grandmother and aunt, a woman devoted to and deeply loved by her family,” her family’s statement said. “Her courage and generosity of spirit throughout her life waging battles big and small, public and personal, will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed.”

Blazing the trail for women, Gerry will be sorely missed in the political scenes and many of the personal lives of people all of the world.
