Happy International Women's Day 2017
Got back from ATX after a long day at the SB 6 hearing yesterday and then crashing into bed nanoseconds after I finally hit the house, but now that I'm awake and in hard solid thinking and writing mode wanted to wish everyone a happy International Women's Day.
On this day I'm thinking about all the amazing women in my life cis and transgender who are amazing leaders in various fields, entrepreneurs, teachers, moms, aunts, nieces, and just generally bad ass. in every way. And thanks to the men, cis and trans who ain't 'scurred' to love, support and kick it with us bad ass women
Thank you sisters for being your fabulous selves in every way. I also thank on this International Women's Day those cis women who are intelligent enough to realize that trans women are women, and just go with it from there in terms of helping us build the relationships and sisterhood we will need to challenge the issues that ail all women together
I'm also thinking about my international sisters who are also facing challenges in their various corners of the world. I see you, I hear you, and on this day pledge to do what I can to elevate your concerns and get the discussion started with input from you in what actions we can take together to make your lives better.
On this day, it's all about honoring women across the planet for being themselves and working together to make this a better world for all of us to navigate.
