Examples of Within in a Sentence

  1. Alexandra Chandler:

    When I came out to my supervisors, I presumed I was going to be fired or it would be a process of me leaving quietly. But instead what happened instead was, even though it would have been within their rights to fire me, the chain of command -- mostly conservative people who had never met a trans person before, knowingly at least -- they stood by me, that just gives me a faith and optimism that I think people have responded to well in this campaign. People crave that. And it's not faith and optimism that's just words and talking points. It's grounded in real experience.
