Viewpoint: The Power of Women

Damita Miller-Shanklin, Editor-in-Chief

This month we celebrate International Women’s Day. March 8 is the day, but the whole month should honor women all over the world. As a woman, we have come a long way in making impacts in the areas of technology, medicine, education, and the political arena. Of course, this is not all the impact areas but you get the idea. As empowered women, we have to be careful to ensure we continue to control our bodies and not allow decisions to be made on a large scale by males that don’t have a clue.

Ujima is celebrating women and the power we possess to make the world a better place. International Women’s Day marks the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It’s the day to raise awareness of discrimination and bias and to inspire and empower us all to take action for equality.

In this issue, we share stories of empowerment in different aspects of life. Our feature is Dr. Monica Anderson, who is an Author, Speaker, Podcaster, and Doctor of Dentistry.
