As an influencer dedicated to helping improve the lives of women, I want to use International Women’s Day to celebrate women—all women. I want to celebrate the woman who is in college while working and raising children, the woman who is working a job that has no benefits and even less security, the professional woman who is afraid to announce her pregnancy for fear that her boss will place her on the “mommy track” thereby causing her to lose everything that she has been working hard for, and the woman who is working harder than the man in the office beside her yet knows that while her struggle is greater, his paycheck is larger. I celebrate you as my sisters involved in the struggle.So, kudos to you for the hard work you do every day. Know that you are not alone. There are those who are fighting every day to help us overcome, either through advocacy, grant making, social media, and more. Also know that there are good men, committed men who are encouraging us and fighting with us. Do not be discouraged. Do not get tired. And do not faint. Our daughters need us to keep fighting. And what you are doing matters.
Today, I was humbled and honored to be recognized by The Motherhood for my contributions to this fight. For a link to the article, click here, Thank you for helping to inspire me!
