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.


Geoffrey Chaucer

For all my years, and knowest what I desire, 
Oh, save me from thy vengeance and thine ire 
Chaste goddess, well indeed thou knowest that I 
Desire to be a virgin all my life, 
Behold, O goddess of utter chastity, 
The bitter tears that down my two cheeks fall.

-The Canterbury Tales: The Knight’s Tale, Geoffrey Chaucer.
