#WeAreLegalVoice: Celebrating International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a time to celebrate the strides and accomplishments made by women around the world. But we know we don't have to look far to find women who are changing the narrative, fighting for justice, and living their authentic lives.

 

So, in honor of International Women's Day, we're turning around the spotlight to lift up a few of the many women who make our progress possible—from a courageous client to a dedicated board member, and several amazing women in between.

Together, these women perfectly illustrate what makes our community so amazing: they are diverse in their identities, their experiences, and their livelihoods, but are united by a dedication to making change.

 

We are honored to share these stories with you, spoken to us in their own words and woven together by Legal Voice’s Phil Bouie.

Will you join us in celebrating these women with a special gift today?

"Can those who have been disenfranchised and left as voiceless truly be heard? Even if we say we’re in a post-colonial or post-racial era, can we truly capture the stories of those who have been traditionally left out of the conversation and honor them?"

"There are a lot of people of color who have done amazing things that have never gotten credit for it. That’s heartbreaking to me. It really comes down to validating and acknowledging people."

"I've definitely had the conversations with older generations where they're like, 'I don't want to say I'm a feminist' but they are. [...] I hope that the negative connotation that sometimes exists with calling yourself a feminist gets wiped out."

"Feminism isn't a zero-sum game."
