YoTrip Celebrates Women You Should Know

March is Women’s History Month and I think it is wonderful that the world takes 31 days and makes a seat of honor for women. In so many faces, places and spaces in this world the value of women is not even considered. In some parts of the world women are treated as second class citizens or less. The beauty of a woman‘s ability to give birth and keep the planet populated is viewed as sport by some people in this world. I am happy to honor, showcase, uplift, and praise women during the month of March and every other day of the year!


Recently, I was invited to sit in a circle among some bright-eyed young ladies and some seasoned, successful women for a candid conversation. The conversation was lively and spirited in the exchange of ideas and advice. At one point, I became sad to hear a young girl offer that she did not know of any women in her life to call role models. I could not let it go, I had to express to the group that being a woman is beautiful, exciting and worthy of honor and these young women needed to find the value of seeing a woman role model in their homes, schools, churches and community at large. So often, young ladies are caught up in the media hype of the rich and famous. The portrayal of the celebrities as living the life, is often what the media projects to sell products and people. This stemmed a round table poll question: who do you consider a role model and why? Most of the seasoned ladies offered that their Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, or Sister were a strong inspiration in their lives. It is my hope that when the seasoned women shared about the power of having a woman to guide you in life impacted the young ladies.


For the remainder of March, I will use my blog sites to feature, YoTrip Asks Five Questions of “Women You Should Know”. Stay tuned…
