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 understand
Just why my head’s not bowed. 
I don’t shout or jump about
Or 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 woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

 

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!
