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

Woman must not accept; she must challenge.
She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her;
she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.

 Margaret Sanger

This photo was taken of Margaret Sanger along with her sister Ethyl Byrne  on the steps of a courthouse in Brooklyn, New York, on January 8, 1917 during a trial accusing Sanger and others for opening a birth control clinic in New York. Both women were found guilty, and the clinic was shut down.
