“Share YOUR voice ”
I am proud that I am a woman during this time. It’s time to share your voice of not only what you want, but what you will no longer tolerate.
I’m wearing red.
>>> Please share this post, if you align with it.
I ask you, as a woman or as a man, to let your voice be heard—in a kind way—that the more we support women to be strong, empowered and confident, the more our children will become strong, empowered and confident and then the more society and the economy will grow, be safer and prosperous.
This “rights” thing is interesting, isn’t it?
I’ve lived in parts of the world where I didn’t have the right to drive. Where women didn’t have the right to run for office. Where they didn’t have the right to hold hands with a man in public.
I’ve lived where in my own home, I didn’t have a right to my own voice.
I could not show up confidently nor empower my daughter when she saw her mother being “whipped” verbally. Children are the greatest observers. Our children are impacted more deeply than is apparent. Our children are the future of society. This is why this is not just a women’s rights story, this is society’s story.
It’s sad in today’s world and especially in the United States the supposed bastion of the free world, where immigrants throng here to seek a better life like my grandparents, that we STILL have to talk about the rights of women.
A strong and prosperous society cannot be built when women’s rights are stilted because when she loses her confidence she cannot give as much, and her children have poor role models. Instead, treat women with kindness and honor so she can grow into the best she can be.
It’s sad in today’s world that women are still viewed, treated and paid LESS THAN.
A strong and prosperous society cannot be built when women are treated less than. Instead, treat women with kindness, respect and equality so she can contribute better in society.
It’s horrific that women are terrorized daily into submission, as I was for decades.
It’s more horrific that their children see their mother being terrorized—psychologically, verbally or physically. For this terrorism gets imprinted in their little brains that will last them a lifetime. And God knows how they will turn out as adults.
A strong and prosperous society cannot be built when women and children are being terrorized. Instead, treat women and children with kindness.
It awful that the majority of women will have something to feel fearful about every week, whether it’s going home to an abusive partner, a bully at work, or having to look over her shoulder in the parking lot.
A strong and prosperous society cannot be built when half the population lives in fear. Instead, treat women with kindness so she will feel safe and can feel confident, and show up as her best in society.
This is not simply about women’s rights. This is about society’s rights to have confident and empowered women so they show up as their best selves, so they can raise strong, confident and empowered children, so that as a whole, society and the economy grow stronger together.
Now is the time for you, as a woman to share your voice. To know that you are not alone. To know that you deserve a happy and joyful life. To know and expect that you are treated honorably and with kindness. You as a woman are in charge of your actions and honoring your own boundaries.
>>> My challenge to you, as a woman:
- Post on your Facebook page: “I deserve a happy and joyful life. I deserve to be treated with kindness, as I will treat others with kindness. I expect nothing less and will honor my boundaries to ensure it.” Hashtag: #IDeserveKindness #IHonorMyBoundaries
Now is the time for you, as a man to share your voice in support of the women in your life, in the world.
Women need men to be strong and powerful enough to take a stand when they see other men mistreating women, when they see other men bullying women. You cannot say you support women and then turn a blind eye when you see mistreatment. Or, when you make a decision to pay her less, just because.
My challenge to you as a man:
- Share with the women in your life and Post in your Facebook page how you are going to show more kindness and support to them. Hashtag: #IOpenlyStandForWomen
- Make a commitment to openly stand—yes it takes guts—but to openly stand for a woman when you see your colleagues or buddies talk about, mistreat or bully a woman, whether she is there or not.
A stronger and more prosperous society will exist when women can be safe, heard, and treated with kindness so they can show up confidently and empowered. The very fabric of a great society depends on a confident and empowered woman.
