Open your hearts to empower all girls and women

The world is starting to show progress toward opening their hearts to empower all girls and women. That in every case it produces better conditions for girls and women which makes for happier families, happier men and boys. Women are coming of age, nearly forty years after the feminist movement, women are finally standing together and moving toward a more free society where girls are raised and educated with equality with boys.

The prospect of having Hillary Clinton as our next President of the United States is approaching toward fruition. With the Obama Care coming of age, everyone in America can go to the doctor, get wellness and preventative treatments and will be healthier because of it. Sure there are some problems but its amazing how over 40 million uninsured Americans now have coverage.

As women become empowered they are becoming the CEO's of companies and taking leadership positions in all fields. Although women still make 76 cents on the dollar that men make doing the same job we will not be discouraged. Did you know that by age 65 the average woman will have lost 431,000 dollars over her working lifetime because of this gender gap? Where is the outrage? And when we retire we get that much less social security benefits as they are based on what our wages put into our fund?

So wherever you are, who ever you are, you are my sister, and I care about your struggles. American women should be reaching out to our sisters in other countries where women are still second class citizens. We can not forget our sisters still struggling to bring in enough money into their families. So many of you are the head of household.

So stand tall, keep thinking free, standing up to inequality. Be the one to stand in the fire, whenever someone is being sexist or racist. Be the one to stand up to the bullies in this world.

Be free sister. Stay safe. Goodnight from America.
