Happy International Women's Day! This year's theme is "Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures". Today we have so much to celebrate, and even more to keep fighting for. Women around the world are still dealing with social and economic inequalities, violence, and health care issues including control over their reproductive rights.
Let's look at some of the issues here in the United States:
|Say the "A" word, abortion and some of your funding might get cut....then reinstated. Why am I still a bit disturbed??|
|Using birth control = you're a slut!|
|If you think you're suffering from inequality, it's unbelievable what transgender and gay women face every day also.|
|Still don't think you need to be vaccinated?|
