I’m so excited to announce the launch of an exciting new community for women and young girls-The ButterFly Bridge!
Many issues plague women and girls today. Insufficient Healthcare, HIV/AIDS, Violence, Prejudice, Gender Inequality in Employment and Education, Civil Rights Violations, Sexual Exploitation,-and the list goes on. But not all of these issues affect all women. In fact, many women may have only experienced one issue as it pertains to civil equality.
Some issues go beyond gender inequalities and expand into racial discrimination. And beyond that, age discrimination. Beyond that, religious discrimination. And even further still, sexual orientation discrimination. These sub classes of discrimination not only prevent women from reaching their full potential, but also divide women within our own gender group.
The women’s rights movements that have taken place all around the world have only scratched the surface of women’s issues. That is why we are seeing a resurgence of gender inequality. While the social justice movements of the past have been successful, they have not addressed the totality of the female “race”.
It is time to close the gap; the Butterfly Bridge hopes to do just that!
There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of communities and/or organizations around the world that support women in various things; And we LOVE them all! Our mission is to introduce women, from all racial, national, and religious backgrounds to one another and connect them in hopes of creating a stronger support system for women everywhere!
This blog site will serve to inform, encourage, enlighten, educate, support, introduce, connect and ignite women all over the world in the fight for gender equality and women’s rights.
Inspired and Enthused,
