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.


Honoring Yesterday's Heroes

"...the Government must not think that they can stop this agitation. It will go on...We are here not because we are law-breakers; we are here in out efforts to become law-makers." 
Emmeline Pankhurst - WSPU, England, 1908

Emmeline Pankhurst, born in 1858, was a British political activist and one of the leaders of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. She died in 1928.

  1. What a delightful way to learn about other women who made a difference! Thanks for doing this. With your permission, I'd like to highlight this blog somehow, perhaps with a link from my blog? Let me know if you're ok with this.
