Welcome to "I Am Woman"...a tribute to all those women who had the courage and perseverance to stand up and fight for their rights. Thanks to those who came before us we enjoy a freedom unknown to women not too long ago. But, sadly, in many parts of the world, women continue to be repressed. In fact, even in this country there are women living today under the threat of violence...completely controlled by a violent spouse. Some may make it; others won't. Hopefully, one day ALL women will be free. May that day come soon.
careful people always casting about to preserve
their reputation or social standards never
can bring about reform. Those who are really
in earnest are willing to be anything or
nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly
and privately, in season and out, avow their
sympathies with despised ideas and their
advocates, and bear the consequences."
Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
