Today FWMG Celebrates International Day of Women!

 

Let’s take a minute and take stock of where we are with regards to respecting and honoring women’s rights. 

 

Women earned the right to vote in 1920.  In 1974 single and divorced women became able to get a credit card without needing a male cosigner.  More recently, in June 2022 the Supreme Court overruled Roe vs Wade, the 1973 decision that generally protected a woman’s right to an abortion.

 

It may seem like it’s one step forward two steps back at times, but perhaps the most important thing is to understand, acknowledge, and appreciate the reality of where we are on the journey.  Knowing where you stand is an important part of moving in the direction you want to go.  So is gratitude.

 

So understanding where we are, and understanding we have a ways to go to get to where we want to be, lets give thanks to those before us who got us as far as we are today.  Then let’s uplift and honor those doing the work now, and those to come, for all they do to create a more just society for all of us.

 

For our part we want to say thank you to all the women out there.  All the hustlers, the mothers, the entrepreneurs, the caregivers, and the teachers.  Wherever you are, whatever role you play, you are seen and appreciated.  Know there are those who have your back, and will continue to fight for you to be able to live how you want to live and be who you want to be.

 

With love and gratitude,
