We have spent the month of March highlighting all of the wonderful contributions that women make and have made in this world, but we left something out. When we talk about history, we must include the good, the bad and the ugly. So, while we celebrate the strides that women are making, let’s remember this side of history, the side that is often overshadowed & goes unnoticed.
This is just a small snapshot of the ways in which women around the world are living under oppressive conditions, both here in the U.S. and abroad. Yes, this is an ugly part of our history, but we can change it. If we want our nations to succeed, we must make women matter! The fight for women’s rights is just beginning, join us!
