Throughout history the role of women has always been controversial. Once they stepped out of the home to do something else, they braved incomparable obstacles.
In their victories, large and small, even in their defeats, and sometimes just for being an indomitable woman of character, all of us women today are blessed to stand on their shoulders, knowing that we, too, can seek our own new horizons.
To the women who blazed new trails, to those who suffered, to those who sacrificed all, and to those who lead us today in new directions — even if we do not agree with all they do — by their thoughts, art, bold words, actions, and incomparable deeds, we all owe a huge debt of gratitude.
