I see me and hundreds of women like me from all works of life meeting together in friendship and sisterhood to advance our common goals.
I have begun a journey of discovery – a journey to find self.
And what great things I have discovered!
I found I can be whatever I dreamed
I found that I am not shackled by society in any way.
Whatever holds me down exists only in my mind.
I found I could transfer the skills of nurturing my children to nurturing an entire community, and entire nation, If I dared!
I found that my inner strength prevailed against any obstacle that sought to trounce my goals.
I found that I had no need to prove a point to society, but that my womanhood is enough to confound anyone that thought me incompetent.
I found that beauty exists much more potently on the inside – and that it is this inner beauty that fully assuages.
I am a woman in the 21st century.
I stand on the shoulders of the African Women who forged on in the face of gender discrimination
The women who found themselves so they could save their communities.
My journey is unfolding, much more exciting stories await as
I and other African Women write our stories.
I am worthy! I am woman! I am an African Woman!
I am an African Woman of Worth!!
