March 8 was a celebratory day honoring the achievements of women globally. The US, although there were some celebrations in a few states (around 6 altogether), had the least amount of participation. Even women in Egypt participated in a Million Woman March -- not many attended, but in that country doing so would get you killed. My son's school was too busy serving Mardis Gras beads and parades to teach about the necessary empowerment of girls.
Are your girls learning about empowerment in their schools? Any programs geared towards that sense of self-confidence, autonomy, and self-possession?
