Thoughts on Being a Woman.

“Women hold up half the sky”

Mao Tse-Tung

 

“There is no tool for development more effective

than the empowerment of women.”

Kofi Annan

 

“How important it is to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes.”

Maya Angelou

 

Dear Women (men, I’m sorry, this post isn’t for you),

Every March we celebrate International Women’s Day. We recognize the women worldwide, their struggles, their achievements, and (of course…eye roll all you want) their PASSION.  In all sorts of adversity – economic, social, and political – we stop for a moment to think about the women who have changed and continue to shape this world. We celebrate the women who impact our lives daily.

For a vast majority of the world’s population, it is also a time to embrace being a woman.

What does being ‘woman’ mean to you? 

Does Ms.Hess’ post sum it up for you…a constant contradiction? 

Or does Eve Ensler hit the nail on the head here?

To the women who inspire me daily, this youtube find is for you. Thank you for ‘changing the verb’.

What can I say, I was born in the 90s.

Today, I celebrate you. For being nothing more than woman and all around amazing!
