Leaving My Mark On The World This Women’s History Month

Hey Cuties

We are halfway through Women’s History Month. If you didn’t know March is the month of the woman. March 8th, in particular, is International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. I don’t know why we needed a day since we have the entire month but either way, I am here for it and so should you. Snatch off your bra and celebrate our strength. Pick our your finest wine glass and fill it with your beverage of choice. For me, that is Raspberry Sherbert + Pink Moscato. Treat yourself!

International Women's Day

It is my job as a mother of a little girl to teach her the importance of being a woman. To teach her the power she posses as a woman. She is only 6 but I started this process from the minute she arrived. I needed her to love and appreciate her blackness and her womanhood. Those are two things people will constantly challenge in her life, but I’ve built a solid foundation for her.  We have been reading her Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History book for over a month now. It shares 40 stories of women who have set the world on fire. She has everyday examples in her life, but I want her to know the world is filled with incredible women. More importantly that those women come in all forms, they have varying interest and they are all necessary.

International Women's Day

I share some of my dopeness in Today’s History Makers 21st Century African-American Female Entrepreneurs by Tanya Barnett.

This book features 40 women who agreed to be a part of this book for our young, impressionable school-age girls. Our girls are exposed to so many negative images on television and they hear demeaning lyrics in music every day.  This book counters these degrading images with a full-color book that will be donated to these girls through various nonprofits.

Click the link to purchase your copy, enjoy all of the stories but start on page 52 and read about me.  I share what I do, what motivates me, an obstacle I had to overcome and advice for young girls. I promise you will be inspired.

International Women's Day

Shout out to the dope ass women featured on the pages with me. We do it while taking care of the kids,  the man/woman (How you Doin?), the home, the work and more.  We are taking back the control of our vaginas. We don’t need Congress to dictate when and how we have babies.  We don’t need men dictating if we should use birth control. How do they know? They have never grown a baby inside their body let alone pushed out an entire person.  We have lived in a male-dominated society for so long, but Times Up, pay us equally. #MeToo, stop disrespecting us and violating us because you get pleasure from it. We are no longer sitting quietly for the years of inequality. The revolution is being televised and the future is female. Get into it!
