Some times I feel that women have really made great strides from when I was a young women struggling to feed and clothe myself, however when I see how few women are able to get elected in our country and how the media still treats women in positions of power differently than men I wonder if this battle will ever end. Not until we have an equal number of women in positions of power making decisions and helping to craft laws of justice will we be able to say we are equal.
For all the women around the world today who are marching in solidarity with your sisters around the world I urge you to teach your family, your community and your country to treat you as your deserve to be treated. Until we insist on equality in all areas of our lives it will not happen. We need first to know, understand and treat ourselves as worthy. I urge my fellow sisters to stand tall today and treat yourself as the most important person in your world.
"The day will come when men will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race."
—Susan B. Anthony
