March 8th: #ADayWithoutWomen sparked a debate among women on #InternationalWomensDay. We may be divided on matters of reproduction, sexual orientation, and income. But our progress is dependent on the unifiers–education, equal pay, equal voice, and the basic right to work. It is shocking that as the leader of the free world, the U.S. falls short in three of the four sectors, save educational opportunity. Planned Parenthood, Roe v Wade, Gender Equality, and LGBT Rights: As women and as mother’s these are issues we can’t escape because we are responsible for and answer to other women. Let’s accept progress. If not for ourselves, for someone we love. #UNITE.
Note the countries on the chart that are part of the #TravelBan. How are we helping these women?
