We might be inclined to forget about W omen's History Month
But the fact is we must remember all the challenges we as women have over come. I know for me personally, professionally and artistically that I must never forget how special our predecessors have been. I even have fond memories of those ladies who have touched my life to help my journey who have no claim to W omen's History Month. There is so much history about I am in awe of the accomplishments of so many women who are acknowledged in our history.Women that needs to be passed on to our daughters and their daughters.
So whether you are sharing history of women or current women to aspire to remember to visit a few sites, read a few books, celebrate your women artists and others. Not only in March but every chance you get. Share them with your daughters, female friends and even strike up conversations of awareness with your male counterparts. We must continue to change with the times and contribute on a level that will make a difference whether it be in big ways or small ways. Here are a few sites to share to inspire your search on the History of Women. I encourage you to take a visit and share your experience.

Today is Pink Friday for the Schools! Stand up for the Schools! The future for our children and their children depend on it! Go to........ www.pinkfriday09.org ! The cutbacks for California are suppose to be $$11.6 billion for K-12. This is a huge impact on our school systems. My mom was a teacher for 25years + She was active in the California Teachers Association

She is my first granddaughter her mom Krissy is doing an amazing job! Audrey loves her new pull dogie toy. I want a better future for her and my youngest daughter of 7 yr. So Support Pink Friday! And have a very Pink Day, Pink Camellias, Pink Pajamas, Pink ribbons in your hair or Wear Pink to show your support for our schools! And remember some of the first things to go are art and music education! My heart goes out to all those affected by the cuts and join me in taking a stand for our educators and their needs!!
