  •  Excellent article, Denise. Thank you SO (5+ / 0-)

    much for including these stories that really illustrate exactly the point. It CAN work if there's proper support.

    We women as makers, creators and catalysts. My own feeling is that the more women KNOW about what's happening in our own communities and how those thing effect our lives, jobs, and families, it's hard to get a woman to NOT get active, tell you the truth.

    Educating people in our communities, especially women, is the first step, like in CeCe's case. Then making sure the support mechanisms are in place so the risk assessment she makes looks more promising is another.

    I'm sharing this on my personal facebook page as well as on the FB page for BBMA, as I think it's highly relevant.

    thanks again for such amazing work. you're a treasure.
