Today we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. We have accomplish a lot, but in regards to equality in pay and standards we have a far way to go. As I reflect on this day, I gravitate to the words of Maya Angelou's "Phenomenal Woman".
...Now you understandJust why my head’s not bowed. I don’t shout or jump aboutOr have to talk real loud. When you see me passing,It ought to make you proud.I say,It’s in the click of my heels, The bend of my hair, the palm of my hand, The need for my care. ’Cause I’m a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That’s me.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!
