#WomensEqualityDay

I previously did a post on Gender Equality which you can check out by clicking the link.

Today is the perfect time to remember the importance of intersectionality, and the fact that women with different identities have different realities. None of those experiences should ever be ignored.

Remember that Hillary Clinton became the Democratic nominee 96 years after some women got the right to vote, while others had to wait four more decades.

That some women make 79 cents on the dollar, while others earn less.

That transgender women are being murdered simply for living their lives.

That young girls in other countries are denied their right to education.

That 1 in 4 women will experience sexual assault in college and instead of being shamed, they need to be supported.

That choosing not to get married or not have children doesn’t make you less of a woman.

That female athletes deserve o be given credit for their accomplishments.

I’m sure I could go on but I think my point has been made. Happy Women’s Equality Day.
