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.


Weekly Quote

The young women of today, free to study, to speak, to write, to choose their occupation, should remember that every inch of this freedom was bought for them at a great price. It is for them to show their gratitude by helping onward the reforms of their own times, by spreading the light of freedom and of truth still wider. The debt that each generation owes to the past it must pay to the future.

  1. That is such a beautiful excerpt from one amazing woman. Abigail Duniway faced tons of personal setbacks in her campaign for women's rights and welfare, but she was not deterred. From her own words, she kept the light ablaze, despite the strong winds blowing against it. I hope these words would be read by all, and speak to their hearts. Thank you for sharing another wonderful post!
