Thanks to March 8, this was the big week for women in the news, and what can I say? With everything we are going through, it feels good to see our sisters celebrated. But as one of my favorite posts from Wednesday says- we’re sisters, not cisters. This month should be about recognizing the struggles and efforts of ALL women.
On that note, I’d like to start this week’s news here. We must stand in solidarity with the NOLA community. Watch the town hall live today from their Facebook at 3 p.m. CST/ 4 p.m. EST!
