I just flew in to share a link to a powerful, must see documentary film called “Once and for All”, presented by Makers and AOL.
This film documents one of the most important events in the history of Womanity…the day all women became legally human!
Sounds strange, I know. Everyone knows that women have always been human beings. That’s common sense; but it hasn’t always been common social and/or legal sense.
It wasn’t until the Fourth World Confrence on women in 1995 (only 20 years ago) that the world began to officially recognize women’s rights and issues as human rights and issues. And it was glorious!
This film documents the thousands of women from every religion and various countries around the world who flocked to China to share their stories and make their voices heard.
And leading the charge was the then FLOTUS (First Lady Of The United States) Hillary R. Clinton. Her speech before the UN delegates was epic! It was this speech catalyzed this new movement that gave women the right to be human.
I got goose bumps when I finally got to listen to it.
Back in ’95, we didn’t have full access to events like these. Without the internet, our knowledge of such events were limited to local media reports-which were very limited and very biased and often degrading.
It wasn’t until years later that young women, such as myself, became fully aware of the significance of the conference. I’m glad the film makers revealed some of it in the film. Those same discriminatory mindsets still exist 20 years later.
If we want to be effective in the fight to end this discrimination, we have to know that we have the right to. And this conference solidified that right.
Thankfully, the entire event is documented in this film so that women and girls world wide for generations to come can witness this historic event.
I invite each of you to watch it and then SHARE it with every woman and girl you know.
Click on the above link to watch the film and to join the fight to end human inequality….once and for all.
Love and Blessings!
