Here at Kupendiza, we joyfully celebrate Native American Heritage Month every year. This year is extra special, though, with the election of the first TWO Native American women to serve in the U.S. Congress! Big up to Deb Haaland of New Mexico and Sharice Davids of Kansas!
All hail to the fathers! If not the one who raised you, he was the one who showed you what a real man was: the sweetness, the encouragement, the strength, the protection, the drive to MAKE US HAPPY, the simplicity of love.
Melinda Gates of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: "We’ll spend $170 million over the next four years to help women exercise their economic power, which the evidence suggests is among the most promising entry points for gender equality. Simply put when money flows into the hands of women who have the authority to use it, everything changes."
My interest in Women's History Month has always been very broad-based. Like Blacks, women have contributed mightily to this country and their contributions have frequently gone unrecognized. This year, I've chosen to highlight as my personal icons the astonishing author and Pulitzer Prize Winner Toni Morrison; Africa's first female president - former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf; and the founder of "A New Way of Life," Susan Burton (a 2018 Women's History Project honoree).
