Recent events and news stories bring very sharply to mind that women still have not achieved equality and that there are factions who wish us to be divested of those rights and freedoms we have achieved thus far.
Bearing that in mind, and the toll it took on 14 young women as well as women around the world, I would like to propose an action.
Starting on Nov. 23 and culminating on Dec. 6th.
14 days to represent the 14 women whose lives were taken that day.
If you have a blog or a website write one thing each day in recognition of women.
It could be about abuse stats, it could be about the work your local women’s group is doing, it could be about the wonderful woman in your life. Friend, mother, girlfriend,teacher…
It could be the goat you bought for a woman half way round the world.
It could be about other actions people can take to change the world.
One thing a day to recognize women’s lives.
On Dec.6th every participant will create an entry called Dec. 6th Memorial with only a picture of a candle as the post.
For anyone who would like to participate but who doesn’t have a blog, you can sign up at Rose’s Place and I will set you up to be an author and you can post there or you can sign up at Bread and Roses and take part in the thread there.
If you take part please send me the name and url of your blog and I will put your link on my blog under Dec.6th Action.
