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.


Quote of the Day.

"The history of all times, and of today especially, teaches that...
women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves."

Louise Otto German feminist, 1849 

Otto was a novelist writing about class prejudice, and an idealist concerned with the emancipation of women. In the 1848 revolution, she demanded full equality for women, including the vote.
