WG: Celebrating Women's History Month

January 13, 1940

activist, peace advocate, political columnist

As you open up and out to the world, as you grow in awareness and empathy for human beings in nations near and far, you may see more acutely, or perhaps anew, the condition of those in your own backyard. This revelation, no matter how great or small, should not be an end in itself. It should…serve as a catalyst to your becoming an agent of change. It should bring to your remembrance the second part of the slogan from the Women’s Conference in Nairobi: the imperative to ‘act locally.’
~Frances Beal
