Thanks, Bella

There are a lot of reasons why I celebrate Women's Equality Day.  Most basic reason is that I value equity and equality.  

In 1971, "at the behest of Bella Abzug",  National Women's Equality Day was established. 
Here's a link to the full text -  http://www.nwhp.org/resourcecenter/equalityday.php

Powerful stuff.  It's easy for me to embrace this intellectually and philosophically.  

Seeing these images of my grand daughters makes it practical and real.

I want their dreams and their realities to be filled with choices with the fewest limitations possible.

And for them to grow up to be people who are wise and just.

Lalo Alcaraz
