Women’s Equality Day is an incredible day for women. Having only lived when women had the right to vote, it’s awe-inspiring to look back and see how much women have accomplished. I can’t believe there was ever a time when things were different. We all are human, and we all have voices and opinions. They should count, and they should be respected. While we are still fighting for equality, I want to celebrate and appreciate the magnificent and courageous women who fought for our rights.

Honor and Celebrate All Women

How do I do this? I celebrate and honor the women who were before me by celebrating and honoring each of you. I love this quote from Kathryn Finney, “We are the change, and in order to continue to force these changes, we have to support each other.” I couldn’t agree more.

inspire one another

As you know, my mission is to educate, inspire, and uplift mothers. I want to help women connect and support one another to improve the world. Through Baby Chick®, I am building a global e-community of strong women who help one another succeed through their journey of life and motherhood and build one another up every step of the way.

Offer Support and Empowerment for All

As women and mothers, we don’t have to agree with every choice others make. But let’s support and empower one another to be the phenomenal women and mothers we are. We can be so hard on ourselves and others. For example, there are opinions that if a mother stays at home with her baby, she doesn’t have a real job or contribute to the family. But if she goes to work to bring home a paycheck, she’s a bad mother for leaving her kids. You can never win, and the list goes on and on.

Only you know what is best for you and your family. So, let’s change our mentality and support each other because the best way to honor the women before us is to continue to support and uplift the women around us. We are our own biggest advocates, and if we can break that stereotypical girl-versus-girl mentality, there is so much we can do.

Empowered Mothers Mean Empowered Communities

I honestly believe that empowered mothers raise empowered children and build empowered communities. They breathe life into their families’ dreams and seek out opportunities to be better and do better, creating a better future. That is powerful. Women helping women can be a real movement to grow a sisterhood for a better tomorrow.

strong women

You have a voice. Make it a positive one, an empowering one. Because even when you help and support one woman, you are helping and supporting all women. Continue to be the change you wish to see in the world, and have a happy Women’s Equality Day.
