International Women's Day

"International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity."
This is the quote at the top of the homepage for:

The Fearless Girl

My achievements:
Today I was on "strike". I did not go to work.  I did not check email. Instead, I made art. All different kinds of art. Buttons, burp cloths, pussy hats, and paintings. I supported a small woman run business. I processed orders, made new things, and prepped for the days to come. If I can get this done in an 8 hour day, imagine what I could do in 40 hours a week. Today I lived a dream, it was sweet.

Thank you to the women who suffered and lead the way for me today. I am lucky to have my work, both inside and outside the home. Here's to finding new hope in the days to come.
