Equality for Women?

August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution was ratified granting women the right to vote.
So what do you think of THIS article on California cutting 100% of it's funding for domestic violence services?! I guess we should kick this month off celebrating the fact that men no longer have the legal right to use, abuse and beat their wives. Unfortunately if you live in California you might not find anyone to stand with you if he does. Who will be there to keep you safe? Who will take you in?
This month's topic is women and equality. Give your two cents on anything that impacts women. How will you celebrate this month with your sons and daughters? Any ideas for activities, projects?

Equal pay for Equal work--Yes! Equal opportunity--Yes! Equal ability--academicly, artisticly, spiritually-Yes! Yes! Yes! Physically? No! When a 12 year old son can totally outlift me when moving furniture, I realized, much to my surprise, that in the physical arena, there is disparity of ability!

I saw something on tv a few years ago, about sextuplets. They all realized they weren't equal in ability and giftings; however, they each had ability and giftings in different areas. Sometimes I wish people would throw the every-body-is-the-same mentality out the window and embrace the beauty of individual strengths and differences. Sameness is not the goal!

What a great comment prompt! You've got me fired up!
