Caroline sat making her sign. When her mother saw her sign, she said, “Sweetie, simplify your sign. Pick one group you feel passionate about and advocate for that group. After all, every woman has the same issues!”
Caroline responded, “That’s just not true! Other characteristics matter, Mother, such as race, ethnicity, sexuality, social class, weight, and I could go on, but you understand. My sign asks each woman to recognize the issues of other women and to advocate for all women’s rights. Victory for some women but not for others is defeat for all of us!”
RESPECT ALL WOMEN!
