Blog Guelph: Bread and Roses


feminism, originally uploaded by Jay Morrison.

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights"
Gloria Steinem

Since you asked.

"The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men."

There are as many reasons to recognize today, International Women's Day, as there are women and girls in the world.

For me, it's a day to drop our imposed boundaries and borders, and to come together.
To quell the ill will.
To address disparities, speak out against violence and oppression.
To shout out, jump up and down, celebrate.
To come together.
And collectively hope for change.

Sisterhood is a mighty powerful thing.
