It took more than 100 years to officially recognize women in America, but it’s been well worth the wait. Women have contributed to ALL facets of society, and now make up more than half the population of the country.
And even though we celebrate our accomplishments, trials and tribulations in the US, we also celebrate the value and significance of women ALL over the world. Most importantly those women who toil and untirelessly keep their families together, often making less than a dollar a day. Those women deserve dignity, respect and support from the rest of us.
We’ll also applaud the achievements of our veteran women , including Patricia Odom, who was honored in last week’s Black History Breakfast.
Women…we salute you on today’s program!
