This month we celebrate the achievements of women in society. We win because women share a Democratic philosophy. The “War on Women” by Republicans has only intensified. Whether it is work place issues, or the freedom of “choice”, we must always stand together. Remember discrimination against one must be recognized as discrimination against all.
