Gender equality has come a long way in the secular world but there is still need for change (let alone in the world of the LCA). We can point to violence each day towards women and we can point to ongoing inequalities in the world place. The following post from Chime for Change and sponsored by many, including Beyoncé Knowles and Arriana Huffington (of Huffington Post), strives to bring ‘Education. Health. Justice For Every Girl. Every Woman’.
None of us can move forward if half of us are held back.
Throughout history, women have done things differently.
When we need to get something done, we do it together.
With each new generation our story has spread wider.
The voices telling it braver, more powerful.
But the story is far from over. These are extraordinary times.
Thanks to technology, women across the world have the ability to connect in ways
unimaginable to those who went before us. We believe that connection empowers us.
We are proud to be joining a growing movement of many.
The young and the old, women and men, from all cultures and all walks
of life who want to see change. Not one, but billions of voices calling for
the empowerment of girls and women. Empowerment through education,
through health, through justice.
This is about hearing a call – to join us wherever you are.
About raising an alarm – drawing attention where there is work to
be done. Our issues are the world’s issues.
This is the sound of connection.
This is the sound of progress.
This is the sound of change.
Will you join Chime for Change and make some noise to bring ‘Education. Health. Justice For Every Girl. Every Woman’. Joining broader movements for gender equality will assist our own movement to recognise giftedness of women within the LCA.
