Welcome to “Beyond Lipstick and Petticoats: A Site Celebrating Women”. Here, I hope to continue to raise awareness about the ongoing issues women and girls face both here in the United States and around the world that affect their ability to pursue their academic and career interests and goals.
Every week this blog will endeavor to highlight the achievements of women both locally and globally. It will also look at programs in education that seek to provide opportunities for girls to pursue their academic and extra- curricular interests, no matter how conventional – or unconventional – they may be. Additionally, this blog will offer a space to discuss those issues of concern that require attention and will offer suggestions on ways we can continue to combat the inequities our sisters face that prohibit them from reaching their fullest potential spiritually, intellectually, and economically.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to promote the continuing efforts of those who work to make the world a better place for everyone, regardless of gender.
After all, there is more to women than just lipstick and petticoats….
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will add to the conversation in the comments section of the blog posts!
