Women are making progress. We are making headlines for our feminism and no, I don't mean that we are being memorialized for glamour and compassion. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. Women, and sometimes men, are taking part in organized activity in support of women's rights and interests. We are making our voices heard in pursuit of equality.
Thank you to the women who who have come before me. Thank you to those who are fighting the good fight today and will continue to do so tomorrow.
I send my respect to all in honor of International Women's Day 2017.
