The time has come for women to relegate our differences to the side and create cohesiveness among the sisterhood. In doing that, we can create a stronger group that can effect changes needed for gender equality. We need to support one another for the good of all womankind. As the saying goes: “one finger by itself cannot do much but, together the fingers can make a fist which can be a powerful weapon.”
