Many of our ordinary women will never have their stories etched in historical archives, for someone to retrieve oneday when they have a school project or need relatable information to highlight WOMEN’S MONTH next year, but their lives are just as important, just as meaningful…. Their stories run like a river from Iran, Iraq, India, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Portugal, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, France, Serbia, Croatia, South Africa,  Macedonia, Sudan….to name a few….

 These women’s lives thread through global economy, gender equality, leadership opportunities, violence, suffering, international business movements, lifespan, money, human trafficking, religious order…..

These women have a face, a name, a voice. Can other women take care and keep the same candle of dignity burning, the same measure of importance alive in the avenues of conversation, so it will not blight their journey and make it meaningless.

Would regular women do the same as celebrities & celebrate all women? Without purchasing hope…. Just giving it in our embrace….
