March the month of Women

March 15th, 2009 at 08:39 pm

March honors prominent women who helped shape this country and in keeping up with a little bit of history here is an FYI:

Anne Dallas Dudley (1876 - 1955)
Political activist central to the campaign to pass the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Serving as National Campaign Director as well as in her home state of Tennessee, she led a march of 2,000 women in the South's first suffrage parade in 1914, and
Fanny Wright
(1795 - 1852)The first American woman to speak publicly against slavery and for the equality of women, Fanny Wright was a rebel who pursued equality for all. She lived according to her own ideals rather than society's dictates.

    Yes, this is a time to honor these visionary pioneers. If you ever get a chance, there is a wonderful museum in Seneca Falls, NY called the Women's Rights National Park. Well worth a visit to the Fingerlakes area.

    And Amber, keep the faith. You have such courage and determination, and you seem like a hard worker. You are the kind of employee who will add great value, and you WILL find a job where you can contribute your talents!
