Happy International Women’s Day!

In acknowledgement of International Women’s Day, here’s a very fitting and classic song by Peter Gabriel.  Peter wrote this song in 1989 as a tribute to the women’s movement in Africa, where women had few, if any, rights.  But if you listen to the lyrics, you’ll see that this song can apply to all women around the world.

The Root Cause of Female Bullying And Why We Need To Teach Girls How To Love Themselves
