Today on International Women's Day I give praise to all of the strong, powerful women on the Globe who have become Ambassador to women,to the magnificent, dedicated women who drives us forward, and to the men who use their power to advocate for us to take our rightful place in the world. 

I also send joy and power to those who have fought prejudice to become women, and to those who were women but knew that it wasn't what was in their soul. You are shining stars of truth and are warriors. 

To those fighting hard battles to bring us forward, and to those who are bravely facing the wind to speak their truth as a woman, we see you, we believe you, and #worldpulse stand with you. 

To all traditional women of the land on which I stand - thank you and I acknowledge you. 

To all worldpulse Executive,Ambassadors and Non Ambassadors, Encouragers and Non Encouragers,Vocal Contributors and Non Vocal Contributors,and to new and old members of this great platform.

We've got a long,long way to go. 

I say Happy International Women's Day.  #ChooseToChallenge

Hello Mariama,
I am so glad to read from you!!! All along in the silence, I have been thinking of any new creations you might be making through your artistic gifts, and sometimes laugh when I remember your poem about the African thunderstorm. Thank you for honoring our collective womanhood in this piece!
I am glad that you are back. Stay strong and sparkly dear :)
