Rock the Red Pump


This past Sunday, I attended the International Women’s Day Wall of Words in Bloomfield, Ontario. On this unseasonably warm and beautiful day, the town hall was bursting with guests in unexpected numbers. Women of all ages, and men too, came out to celebrate Women’s Day. The theme at this particular event was Heal Mother Earth.

International Women’s Day is a reminder that we must continue to work together and understand those issues effecting women today. This day directly precedes National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on March 10th which challenges us all to be inspired, but furthermore, to follow through with action.

That brings me to a couple of ladies who are doing just that. They are Karyn of The Fabulous Giver and Luvvie of Awesomely Luvvie and they are ‘Rocking the Red Pump’. Check it out…

In closing I leave you with a commanding quote spoken by Roz at the Wall of Words that resonated that day;

We are not afraid of our ignorance.
We are afraid of our power.

Stand tall.
Love you.
Love Me.
