Remembering International Women’s Day – The Time is Now

Remembering the women around the world who have toiled long hours, tired or sick, under perilous conditions with little pay to take care of themselves and their families.

May the wage gap be eliminated. May every girl and woman feel and be safe and secure at school, at work, at worship and at home. May every girl or woman who ever heard, “Girls can’t do that,” know they can. The time is now. — Tanya Goodman
