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.
"We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask
that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the
United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever."
Anthony, Declaration of Rights for Women, July 1876
