Women Need to Pick a Pink Platform for 2019

December 18, 2018

Inspiration, motivation for women, women entrepreneurs and women in sports

As 2018 starts to wind down, it is time to consider the issues still relevant to women’s equality as women move forward into a New Year. I already see planning for another annual Women’s March on DC on January 19, 2019 and remember when I took 150 women with me to the 2017 Women’s March. Last year I stayed local and co-hosted a CNY Women’s Rising March in my city of Syracuse, New York. As 2019 approaches, I’m planning on supporting the Women’s March in Seneca Falls, New York, the birthplace of the Women’s Rights Movement. There is so much to still march for as we enter a new year.

In fact, I encourage any woman reading this blog post to commit to picking one “pink platform” to take up or continue in 2019 to make a difference. My platform for two decades has been encouraging women to buy from women entrepreneurs and women in business first and foremost to help eradicate pay inequality until congress passes an “Equal Pay Law” for women. Other women know me well by this pink platform and stutter when they tell me they are doing business with a man instead of working harder to find a female vendor to support. I’m glad I make women stop and think when they see me. My pink platform has been shared with thousands of women. I will continue into 2019-2020.

Where do you start if you don’t have a pink platform yet? Well here are some ideas listed in a June 2018 online article on Thoughtco.com entitled “8 Major Issues Facing Women Today” to help you:

1. Sexism and Gender Bias
2. The Power of Women’s Vote
3. Women in Powerful Positions
4. The Debate Over Reproductive Rights
5. Life Changing Realities of Teen Pregnancy
6. The Cycle of Domestic Abuse
7. The Betrayal of Cheating Partners
8. Female Genital Mutilation

With the rise of the #MeToo Movement and more women running for political office, women are speaking up and out about issues most important to them and other women to affect change. We need very woman to choose a platform and join established organizations like NOW or Planned Parenthood or create new organizations or alliances with groups like Women TIES or one of your own.

For your information, Women TIES is more interested in pay inequality issues and also supporting women in sports get more attention and support from other women. Reach out to us if you are interested in getting involved with us in 2019-2010 at http://www.womenties.com.

I hope today’s post inspires you to choose a pink platform and commit to it 100% moving forward.
