Sisterhood is global and it is personal and it is political. If social media images of Syrian women eeing war, of Afghanistanian women shot while pursuing their right to an education, of African- American women watching their men die in the front seat of their cars doesn’t rock you to your core and offend your sensibilities as a woman, you need to check your pulse. As women, we owe it to our sisters around the world to sit up and go to bat. As mothers, daughters, friends, lovers, sisters, we stand together.
