My 24 hours of Le Mans karting

I arrived on the circuit on Thursday morning when I met my team-mates and the staff of the team. We made the technical checks of the kart and I began my free trials by 4 pm and I finished at about 11 pm.

Friday was like Thursday except that at the end the day, we made the timed tries and we finished at the 20st place which allowed us to have a nice place on the starting grid .

Saturday was the big day, starting time was at 3 pm. Then began the hardest race that I had ever participated before !

But who's this champ?

Indeed, the night was very hard, we broke an engine and we lost many places but we did not give up until the end of the race and we finished on Sunday at 3 pm at the 6th place of our category and 14th of general classification of the 24 hours of Le Mans and the world championships of endurance karting.

The Iron Lady

Margaret Thatcher was a British woman called the Iron Lady who had one of the biggest career in polics in Great Britain. She broke the prejudices on women by becoming the first woman prime minister in 1979. She was a very daring woman who made it to the top. Eventhough she was a model of success she was responsible of antifeminist words like "Feminism is a poison.". She struggled to raise the economic situation of England. To conclude, she nevertheless served to bridge the gap between men and women.


Emeline Pankhurst

As an exceptional British woman, Emeline Pankhurst was a leading British women's rights activist, who led the movement to win the right for women to vote. 
She struggled all her life to bring men and women on an equal footing. That's why, Emeline founded in 1889 the Women's Franchise League which fought to allow women to vote in local elections.
She created a women's movement, and Emeline wanted to draw the attention to her cause. So, British politicians, the press and the public were astomised by their bolds demonstrations : window smashing, arson and hunger strikes. She continued her struggle to reach her goal, to stand up for their rights. In 1918, the Representation of the People's Act gave voting rights to women... And it's a lot thanks to Emeline Pankhurst.

Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks was an exceptional woman because she believed in affirmative action. She was a black woman who stood up against racism in the United States: she wanted to be on an equal footing with the white people. One day, she sat in the front of the bus while it was compulsory for black people to sit in the back. This woman did not lack courage. Rosa Parks was arrested by the police but she never stopped fighting for black people's rights. In 1955, that was the starting point of the bus boycott. It was an achievement: new laws were passed making segregation in buses illegal. She reached her goal and received many awards for her struggle. Rosa Parks is an incredible woman.

Woman of the year?

Hillary Clinton an American woman who thinks women can be treated in the same way as men and can be on an equal footing socially, politically and economically.

She said:" Women's rights are humans rights, and human rights are women's rights."
On the one hand she struggled for women's rights and on the other hand she fought against inequality and violence to the women. She continues her fight and she over-comes the difficulties to assert her rights because she's not submissive. On the contrary she represents the achievement that makes of her an important politician.

Consequently her career shows that all the women have the same opportunities to make it to the top and to reach their goals. Moreover if she becomes the first woman president she will show to the whole world that the women can be equal and it will be a big step.

A fabulous woman, Emily Davidson

Emily Davison was born in 1872 in London, she was one of the most famous suffragettes for her investment to bridge the gap between women's rights and men's rights. For her, women were not second class citizens and they had to have the same job opportunity, the same wages and the same rank in the society as men.
To reach her goal, she integrated a women's association named Women's Social and Political Union, created by Emmeline Pankhurst. This association stood up for women's right, by orginizing demonstrations. She was imprisoned several times for public disturbances. In jail, she went on hunger strike to draw the attention of the politicians on their cause.

But her most radical action, was in 1913, during a derby. She went to the horse race, and tried to stop the king's horse. Unfortunately, the horse knocked her down. She died in martyr. After that, nobody can deny or refuse to consider their struggle.
