International Women’s Day


IWD

Ladies:

Can you imagine being considered property just because you’re a woman? We are considered individuals now (in most places of the world).

Can you imagine having no say in family decisions or even in who you marry? Our parents now let us decide who we want to spend our life with. Also, our men trust us to be part of the decisions that affect our families.

Can you imagine not being able to take part in who leads our country? There are still places where women can’t vote or have a say. We didn’t have that right in the US until 1920.

There is so much more that we have accomplished. This post is mainly to serve as a thought provoker. Think of all of what has happened in history. Think of the milestones that women have overcome. AND think of all the women in the world who still don’t have the same rights as men or women in the US. Think of the young women in sex trafficking slavery. Think of the women who are forced by their husbands, brothers, uncles, and fathers to participate in war by suicide missions.

That’s how far we have come. And we have so much more to accomplish. Not just for ourselves, but for the women of the future as well. Comment with our accomplishments!
