With my sister, one of the best women I know! #sisterhood
"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke... She will need her sisterhood." Gloria Steinem

As a blogger, I focus on being a working mom and publish posts designed to help empower working moms, educate those who love working moms, and advocate for the policy changes we need in order to do what we do even better. Indeed, women are still fighting for basic human rights. We are fighting or the recognition that our experiences, our femininity and our health are worthy of discussion in the greater conversation and not relegated to a sidebar discussion about a "special interest group". 

We are women. We are here. We gave birth to every person on the planet and failure to include our needs and desires in every policy conversation is a denial of our humanity. Deal us in!

As I shared recently, I am a better mom because of the assistance, advice and encouragement that I get from my sister. (For a link to that post, click here.) So, I decided to share these photos of us on International Womens' Day. They represent the special bond we women have--an empowering sisterhood that elevates our spirits and our performance when we remember that we are all traveling this journey together and we matter--whether we have given birth to a child, a company, or an idea.

So, my sisters, let's lift up one another. Let's be our cheerleaders, our champions and our heroes. And on this International Women's Day, let's commit to creating a fabric of sisterhood that is so powerful and strong that it helps change the world.
