Women…A Tapestry of Divine Dignity
By: Leila Diab/Arab America Contributing Writer
As years go by, women from all races, cultures and coupled with a plethora of extraordinary life experiences, are being honored on March 8, 2019, and throughout the month of March, in the whole world.
In the 21st century, women have had the courage to stand up, speak out, and advance their unprecedented political accolades, and achievements to make a difference in all realms of society.
The newly U.S. elected women of Arab, Palestinian, and Muslim descent, such as Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and the African and Middle Eastern women without borders of freedom, are living with an unflinching diasporic consciousness to persevere and protect their families and communities with a beacon of hope and change for a better life.
From all four corners of the world, on International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we witness the dawning celebration of women of courage, monumental sacrifices for their will of survival and justice, intellectual prowess, and divine intervention of truth and human dignity.
Women who have become martyrs for refusing to remain silent in the face of inhumane war and civilization are the divine tapestry and soul of dignity. And yet, women will continue to rise up to define the communication barriers for justice, freedom, equality, and peace.
This Thursday is a time to join together to celebrate global worldly events to honor and pay special tribute to women and the rising contributions of women of all races in years to come.
Happy, peaceful International Women’s Day.
We salute you!
