A Tribute to Womanhood

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.


Women's History Month

"I'm a woman / Phenomenally / Phenomenal woman, / that's me." --Maya Angelou

Every March is Woman's History Month in the United States.  It is a time for all of us to honor the sacrifices, accomplishments and contributions of women throughout history.  It is time to celebrate the opportunities and dreams given us by generations past. It is time to praise women!  And not just women from the United States...This means women from all over the world.

During this month, this blog  will reflect upon those great women of our past and present who have shaped history.  Each of them embraced, struggled against society and endured hardships while triumphantly pursuing their cause, and in so doing, they have aroused and empowered generations of other women to do the same. But dissimilar and assorted as they were, all of these women had one thing in common. They were true to themselves; they were courageous and willing to fight for their beliefs. These are the women who changed history. 

National Women's History Month has been celebrated in the United States since 1987.

    Anyway, hope you keep this blog going and you get more comments.
