Excerpts from Independent Journal Review
By: Ronna McDaniel
Wednesday, March 8, 2017
"On this International Women’s Day we remember the challenges generations of women have overcome as they fought for the rights and representation we have today. …
"Because of those who came before us, today, just like every day of every week, millions of women around the world woke up and went to work. … More even still woke up and were already on the job as mothers and caretakers.
"These women do not have the privilege of taking a day off, shirking their professional and personal responsibilities. The women striking today promote the ideals of a small subset of women in this country.
"We must use our seat at the table to be a voice every day for women and girls across the country who often do not have the same opportunity to have their voices heard. This means advocating for childcare and paid family leave, as first daughter Ivanka Trump has championed in this administration.
"It means advocating for quality and affordable healthcare for families of all backgrounds, as House Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers and so many other women in Congress have worked tirelessly to promote.
"I will never take a day off from working to make sure that the Republican Party is a place where we restore optimism for generations to come.
"… I went to work alongside women—and men—who are working every single day to lift up our fellow Americans, be role models for our children, and leave our country even better than we found it."
