Empowering women

I came across this quote and wanted...no, needed to share it with my female readers. Actually, men can appreciate it too and share it with the women in their lives so they too can be empowered. Too often women are being referred to as hoes, bitches, dimes, or some other term that somehow demeans us and it's not cool. Our daughters, nieces, sisters; even mothers need to elevate themselves and the other women they encounter. I want you all to forward this quote to women you want to empower and to men who have women they too want to empower. Unfortunately, I don't know who said it, so please at least give it an "anon" when you forward it. K? Thanks!

People can look at this two different ways, but I don't want to start a blog fight, so I will just say it is a great quote.

Having no limits is wonderful!!!!

ALL - I've been mad busy lately, so forgive me for not replying sooner and for not shouting each of you out individually. I appreciate all the love for this post. I realize that the quote can be read in a number of ways, but it seems you're all on board with the basic premise of it, which is great. We ALL need to lift our mothers, sister, daughters, aunts, etc., up because positive reinforcement reduces negative influence and action.

Young Miss Williams & stillme, thanks for popping my comment cherry with your comment. it's always nice to see a new reader at the spot.

daver, i know i haven't visited in a while, but i'll be sure to make good on a visit *smile*
