March 8, 2017 – International Women’s Day
I would like to take this opportunity to commemorate International Women’s Day and express my best wishes to the women and girls celebrating.
This is a day that is special to me as a husband to my wife of 41 years and a proud father of five daughters all who are teachers in the public education system and passionate about inspiring the next generation of women.
The theme of this year’s celebration is “Be Bold For Change.” It is in this spirit that I encourage women in our communities, and the men who support them, to push for a culture where every woman and girl can fulfill her potential and participate fully in politics, society, and the economy.
On International Women’s Day, we are able to highlight the barriers still faced by women while celebrating the women who are taking leadership roles in their communities. Our communities flourish when women and men have equal opportunity to succeed.
