this is a daily reminder to support women:

  • support women while having critical conversations
  • support women who have critical conversations
  • support women who agree with you
  • support women who disagree with you
  • support women who are vulnerable in some ways
  • support women who are strong in others
  • support women who have never had such care
  • support women who just need a little bit of encouragement
  • support women, always
