What would happen if women lived truely happy, authentic and meaningful lives?

Did you know that women are twice as depressed as men?
Did you know that according to a University of Pennsylvania study, women are less happy today than women were 30 years ago?

We have more choice, more opportunity, and more misery.

It’s not right and I’m excited to be part of an effort to change it.

This October here in Lagos, Nigeria, I join my friend and colleague @carinrockind the founder of Women’s Global Happiness day and other hosts for a worldwide experience to educate and empower women to define happiness for themselves and claim it!
Women deserve great happiness – we need a safe space to define it for ourselves and to celebrate each other’s gifts. Women are coming together in #sisterhood, #purpose, and #joy Join us!

Victoria Claflin Woodhull, born this day in 1838, was a suffragist, abolitionist, publisher, and the first woman to run for President of the United States.
Woodhull and her sister, Tennessee Claflin, opened Woodhull, Claflin & Company, in New York in 1870. Their radical political reform newspaper, Woodhull & Claflin’s Weekly, began publication the same year and continued for six.
Woodhull was nominated as a presidential candidate by the Equal Rights Party in 1872. The party nominated former slave, abolitionist, women’s rights advocate, statesman, and author Frederick Douglass for vice president. Though Douglass did not acknowledge his nomination, Woodhull actively campaigned for the presidency — despite not being able to vote for herself — arguing that women already had the right to vote according to the 15th and 16th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. (Women's right to vote was not officially recognized until passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.)
Like her first wave feminist counterparts, Woodhull was steadfastly opposed to abortion. In an editorial on children's rights, she stated, "The rights of children, then, as individuals, begin while they yet remain the fœtus." In an October 8, 1870 "special editorial," "When Is It Not Murder to Take Life?" she asserted, "Many women who would be shocked at the very thought of killing their children after birth, deliberately destroy them previously.... They do even more than murder, they virtually commit suicide, for no woman can practice this crime without in part destroying her own life."
Five years later, Woodhull condemned the conditions that drove women to abortion, declaring, "Men must no longer insult all womanhood by saying that freedom means the degradation of woman. Every woman knows if she were free, she would never bear an unwished-for child, nor think of murdering one before its birth."
Feminists for Life carries on the legacy of Victoria Woodhull and our other feminist foremothers, who sought better circumstances for women and worked, just as we do, for a world in which abortion is unthinkable. #Feminism #Feminist #Feminists #ProLife #WomenDeserveBetter #FeministsForLife

Chicana civil rights activist Graciela Olivarez died in 1987. In 1970, she became the first woman and first Latina graduate of Notre Dame Law School, despite never graduating high school.
Along with "The Feminine Mystique" author Betty Friedan and 26 others, Olivarez was a charter member of the National Organization for Women. Abortion advocacy — conspicuously absent from the charter — was not adopted by NOW until 1967, and then only after heated debate. But Olivarez, unlike the organization she helped to found, continued to practice a belief in the indivisibility of all human rights.
Her accomplishments were numerous. She headed the Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity, Food for All, the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, and as director of the federal Community Services Administration in the late 1970s, was the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in President Jimmy Carter's administration. Prior to that, in 1972, she was appointed vice chair of the U.S. Commission on Population Growth and the American Future.
The commission's 1972 report — issued the year before Roe v. Wade and the same year as the founding of FFL — recommended that "federal, state, and local governments make funds available to support abortion services in states with liberalized statutes" and "abortion be specifically included in comprehensive health insurance benefits, both public and private." Of the 24 commissioners, just two dissented; Olivarez was one of those two.
Her view on this "matter of life and death," she asserted, should not have been brushed aside as a "denominational hang-up." She called upon anyone who considered the unborn child "a mass of cells" to witness an abortion procedure, as she had done. She prophetically detailed the harms of making abortion more accessible:
"Advocacy by women for legalized abortion on a national scale is so anti-women’s liberation and women’s freedom that it flies in the face of what some of us are trying to accomplish through the women’s movement, namely, equality — equality means an equal sharing of responsibilities by and as men and women....

Susan La Flesche Picotte, who died in 1915 was inspired to become the first Native American female physician - as well as the first Native American of either sex to earn a medical degree - when one of her fellow Omaha tribeswomen died because of lack of medical care.

Her parents were born half Native American and half white, so Susan grew up bridging two cultures. She had two sons and said, “‘Motherhood is a privilege,” and thought it was “a shame that for medical reasons, some women could not bear children.” #Feminism #Feminist #Feminists #ProLife #WomenDeserveBetter #FeministsForLife

When your prayer life gets deeper, the Lord calls you to do things that stretch your heart. Although I found my passion for helping women, men and their preborn children in college, it has been some time since I served in this necessary way. This morning I prayed and offered resources to people going inside of an abortuary. The Holy Spirit guided my words and actions to try and save these families from the trauma and murder that abortion encompasses. Abortion is the leading cause of death- ripping families apart, leading to a steep suicide rate of young people, ending the lives of those created by Jesus himself. I left after an encounter with a woman who dropped her teenage daughter off for an abortion. Her denial of what she was a part of was excruciating. Praying for her in the car on my way home with tears streaming down my face I believe that there is still hope. There is always hope- Jesus changes everything!! Jesus calls us to do radical things. May we always answer the call no matter how hard it is or breaks our heart. We are His hands and feet. John 14:27 Jeremiah 29:11 Genesis 1:27 #obedience #abortion #sidewalkcounselor #prebornlivesmatter #madeinHisimage #abolishabortion #leadingcauseofdeath #womendeservebetter #Hopeandafuture

It’s really quite remarkable that in 2018 this statement rings so true. God created woman from Adams side, to stand beside him, not behind or beneath him. Why would we accept this type of behavior. #metoo #women #womendeservebetter #enpowerourdaughters #stopthebullshit #wiseupcongress #raiseyourvoice #beheard
