March is a very important month for women that could use more attention and publicity. The entire month celebrates the United States National Women’s History Month. In the past decade, the number of African-born women in the U.S. has signficantly increased. Women of African descent are profoundly woven into the fabric of American soceity’s women’s history. There are specific dates in March that are also worth highlighting: March 8th (International Women’s Day) and March 10th (National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day).
For the special month of March 2011, there are several new initiatives that will be launched on the Threads of Our Fabric blog every week (starting March 8th) to celebrate femininity exclusively for African women and Girls.
So why don’t we prepare ourselves and continue digging deeper in our intimacy or in-to-me-see dialoguing experience and journey!
Select a woman in your life who is an inspiration to you. In what ways are you like her? And in what ways are you uniquely you or unlike her?
