Yesterday, women and children from every district in Belize woke up before dawn to fly, drive, bus and walk to march for equality. To come together and show our country that we have a voice, that we are not passive, that we should not live fear – that we will not take discrimination, bullying, violence and abuse lying down. That the women of Belize deserve equal education and healthcare opportunities as men.
It was absolutely breathtaking and beautiful. I started crying too many times.
Some of the hardest working people I know – those who work with Oceana Belize, They understand the power of knowledge and education. They know what Belizeans can do when we come together. There was an area where small businesses set up to show their products. Women…many working out of their homes…
I bought 2 bottles of Ms Muriel’s hot sauce – pineapple habanero and yellow ginger. I LOVE the labels!
Earrings, beauty products and clothing. Baskets and one of my favorites, MayaBags from Punta Gorda. Where local women are making fabrics and doing basket weaving for products that are being sold internationally.
