Quote:  hildren's lives do not wait until after hours. — Womanhood and motherhood must be honored, work of home and family must be shared, ethic must be valued over profit so women have the ability to raise children while maintaining remunerated work. Girls must feel worthy, and be recognized so—worthy to grow to be healthy, able women and mothers.
