The legacies we pass on are the ones that shape our society. We teach our daughters how to live in a society that does not value women. How are you doing that? What steps are you taking to ensure that your daughters, granddaughters, nieces and cousins have the tools to be great in a world that does not value them?
I am making a documentary about you.
I am looking for women who are passing on the legacy of marching and protesting in the tradition that gained us the right to vote.

I am in the development process for a new documentary. If you and your family are planning on going to the Women March in Washington, DC in January of 2019, let me know. I am looking for women who are teaching younger generations about the power of making your voice heard.
This week I have spent wading through women who are experiencing outcries since the Kavanaugh hearing. For many, it was traumatic watching Dr. Christine Blasey Ford give testimony. It brought to mind abuses they had suffered in the past.
They spoke about it on Facebook. They spoke about it on Twitter. When I walked down the street, I heard women talking about it. When I sat on the subway, I heard women talking about it. When I stood in the elevator, I heard women talking about it talk.
I saw the pain on their faces. I saw the hopelessness in their eyes. I saw a desperation that is slowly building up. The worst part of this is that there are people in power who give no consideration to the damage done or the damage still being done to millions of people.
Oppressed is defined as when someone is subject to harsh and authoritarian treatment. Today feels like harsh and authoritarian. But I know these people will have their day.
I have a word for those feeling oppressed.
He is still the God of the Oppressed even though it might not feel like it right now. I am sad that these women are being ignored, but I know that God will vindicate them.
His word will not return void. Trust Him in this desert.
