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.


The Truth Of Woman


 Woman's faith, and woman's trust
    Write the characters in the dust;
    Stamp them on the running stream,
    Print them on the moon's pale beam,
    And each evanescent letter
    Shall be clearer, firmer, better,
    And more permanent, I ween,
    Than the thing those letters mean.
    I have strain'd the spider's thread
    'Gainst the promise of a maid;
    I have weigh'd a grain of sand
    'Gainst her plight of heart and hand;
    I told my true love of the token,
    How her faith proved light, and her word was broken:
    Again her word and truth she plight,
    And I believed them again ere night.

Sir Walter Scott
