Happy International Women’s Day!
Today some of us celebrate women–our mothers, grandmothers, aunties, cousins, sisters, our role models, mentors, and teachers. This year, more than ever, it’s important to fight for women’s rights, for human rights, because, sadly, here, in the U.S., these rights are disappearing with each passing day.
“Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.”First Lady Hilary Rodham Clinton, 1995
Over the past twenty years, I’ve had the chance to interview and photograph many women activists, whose work has made a difference to better many people’s lives.
In my own life, I’ve learned early on that, especially as women, our human rights are not to be taken for granted. But I’ve also met many inspiring women, from all walks of life, willing to fight for those rights.
Many women have been my role models for all or most of my life; others, I’ve met only recently. They’ve been my inspiration, as well as my supporters. And yet, many other inspiring women, I’m yet to meet and, perhaps, photograph. Thank you to all the wonderful women in my life!
So, today, I’m just going to wish the women who’ve made a difference in my life, as well as all the women fighting to protect our rights,
As always, thanks for stopping by.
