was the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March this weekend, and we’re still over here dreamin’ of a brighter future for girls and women everywhere.
Although I live in Washington, DC, and follow politics closely, I don’t let it bleed into my blog. I try and keep a separation, but women’s rights and human rights are something I’m personally very passionate about.
Sometimes I wonder if we ever learn our lessons from history. We broke the chains of slavery, we brought down the Berlin Wall, but inequality persists. And no matter the mountain of evidence that shows giving women and minority communities an opportunity to seat at the table is good for everyone, it is still a fight we continue to have. For example, did you know that when women participate meaningfully in negotiating peace agreements, they are 35% more likely to last at least 15 years.
