Life's Challenges

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you; they're supposed to help you discover who you are. ~ Bernice Johnson Reagon, Singer/Composer

When a Woman Believes She is Equal, She is Called Uppity

“When a woman believes she is equal, she is called uppity.  When we stand up for what we know and what we believe, we are called aggressive and unfeminine.  When we state that women are wonderful and that we are proud to be a woman, we are told that we are anti-male.  When we put forth our perceptions, we are told that we don’t understand reality.  When we put forth our values, we are told that we are crazy and we just don’t understand the way the world works.  Is it any wonder that we sometimes have trouble with self-esteem?” – Anne Wilson Schaef, Author/Lecturer
