Making Women's Rights a Top Priority

I wanted to share this article with the iamgoddess community. As women, our rights seem to be continuously in danger and at risk, and it's so important for us all to be vigilant about making women's rights a top priority at all times. We have an opportunity to turn the tide on the sad state of women's affairs that have become the norm in our country and worldwide for too long. Let's work hard to put as many women in government (in all countries) as we possibly can, while continuing to build our communities with strong female-based networks such as this one. Our female ancestral leaders would be proud.

Goddess bless women everywhere and keep fighting the good fight!

Thank you for sharing that Heidi. We've come far, but there's still so much more to do. Here's to powerful women!

Thanks for sharing this. At times, our society seems to be regressing. It's good to be reminded that we have to actively work to make it better.

I, as an optimist, choose to focus on the fact that women's rights have come very very far, the days when women couldn't vote were quite long ago, but as of 1998, 23 percent of all doctors were women, and today, women make up more than 50 percent of the medical student population. All this is good, and it shows that women can gain rights, but as of 2001, only 19 women have ever served as a United States governor; this is one thing that needs to be fixed.
