And, It Includes
(Sunday, March 8th, 2020)
Hello Friends
(Especially My National & International Sisters),

MARCH is Women's History Month!

This year's Theme is:

In commemoration of the centennial of the 19th Amendment , women are honored who were from the original suffrage movement , as well as 20th and 21st century women, who continue the struggle to ensure VOTING RIGHTS for ALL . That struggle, even today, include: Fighting against Poll Tax, Voter Roll Purges, Literacy Test, and other forms of Voter suppression.

What a perfect time to remember and acknowledge the accomplish-ments of women of our past and present who have made notable contributions to our lives.

Let us celebrate ALL Women from every country, every ethnicity and background--not just in March, but all year long.

International Women's Day (IWD) this year is Sunday, March 8th.

T his year's IWD theme is,
"Generation Equality: Realizing WOMEN'S Rights"

The Equality campaign is bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve, especially our young girls.

An equal world is an enabled world. Equality is not just a women's issue ; it's also a business issue . Therefore, Gender Equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive, not just to survive. 
Individually , we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements.
Collectively , each one of us can help create a gender-equal world. Start with VOTING--commemorating our ancestors' and present leaders' struggles for that Voting Right .

VOTING gives us a VOICE.
Give the WOMEN in your life their F l o w e r s NOW;
while they can still smell them!

Love & Blessing,
Aunt Hatti e

The ASALH Featured Authors' Event & Luncheon - Sat., Feb. 22, 2020               
I was excited to support the Open My Heart Foundation Red Dress Gala & Awards Program, on 2-28-20 with Florence " Duchess" Champagne— via my Sisters4Sisters Network sponsorship ( Peggy Morris, President & Founder, is on the Board for the Open Heart Foundation ) ; and by inviting some dear friends to attend: Jackie Turner, Angela & Eric Twiggs (fellow Author,
“The Discipline of NOW”).
Everything was elegantly executed and took place in record time. The Keynote Speaker, Dr. Barbara Hutchinson , gave salient strategies for how persons surviving heart-related illnesses can THRIVE, not just SURVIVE: Be Proactive; Be Persistent; Be Polite; and Give Praise . Also, The decorations of red and white were exquisite, and the dinner selection (crab cake, chicken, string beans, roasted potatoes & cheesecake chocolate cake dessert) was superb and succulent.

Well Done, Duchess, the OMH Board, Planning Committee, and all involved.
