That quote is one of my favorites...it truly makes the point. We are working for the day when it's so commonplace to be a women leader, CEO, pilot, director or yes...President of the U.S...that it's not necessary to make the distinction.

I always find it a bit sad that we have to pick out specific days or months to celebrate segments of our population, e.g., women. But as long as we have to, we will. To celebrate. To lift up. To Advance the cause(s). To advocate. I do like this quote:

"In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders." - Sheryl Sandberg

We are not there yet. Until then...

As you may know, March 8 is International Women's Day. To mark this day, Pittsburgh Feminists for Intersectionality has organized a day of education, connection, and action. Learn the meaning of intersectionality, and why it is so crucial to all the work we do as we move forward. All are welcome to come to any selection of blocks or to stay for the full event. Speakers will address the key issues of education rights and equity, LGBTQ rights, reproductive rights, sexual assault, and disability rights, amongst other topics. Each issue will be addressed by two speakers from different organizations to show how the same issues affect us differently depending on the intersections of our identities. The event is free and absolutely all are welcome, but space is limited, and so all attendees must RSVP: Ym7MnyVy7w4eWPmR2.
