About the author


  1. I love this and I think all of us women should stick together – I pray we can no matter what. You are all my friends!

  2. As a woman, International Woman’s Day makes me want to hurl myself out a window. Morgan Freeman was right in opposing Black History Month (YouTube it – go ahead). I’m offended that women are so feeble minded that we need a designation boost your self-confidence day. Can we stop with the nonsense?
