“Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you. It’s you who can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai
Today, in the United States, has been declared "A Day without a Woman". Some bloggers are going silent today. I am not.
At one time, this was the fate of many women - an endless round of hard labor for little or no reward. Many people work to make this a thing of the past.
Women can be our own worst enemies. We will tear other women down. Today, let us pledge to support each other.
There is no question that our society could not run without women for more than a few seconds. In my 64 years, I've seen women make great strides but we have so far to go, here in the United States. But we have such a far way to go. This past year has shown us just how far.
This was my post for 2016.
Today, I am taking baby steps to become more politically involved, as the world demands it. I am also thinking of some type of participation in events related to VoteTilla, celebrating the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in New York State.
Just imagine that - my spouse's 105 year old aunt was born into a world where she could not vote. She could not help decide who would make decisions on her behalf.
Let's keep the world moving forward. Let's celebrate strong women, but pledge to lift each other up in an atmosphere of positivism.
Will you join in bettering the lives of women throughout the world?
