Do you sometimes wonder why women are being erased in society? I do and this latest article (see below) by The Federalist has me remembering the hard work done by other women who came before us and stood up for our God-given rights, such as:
1. Suffrage: Women’s suffrage, the right to vote, was a major battle fought by women around the world. It involved demonstrations, protests, and campaigns spanning several decades.
2. Employment and Workplace Rights: Women’s rights movements have campaigned for equal pay for equal work, anti-discrimination laws, maternity leave, and workplace protections.
3. Credit: The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) was passed in 1974. It prohibited discrimination in credit transactions based on gender, among other protected categories. The ECOA aimed to ensure that women could obtain credit on equal terms as men. Prior to the ECOA, it was not uncommon for women to face restrictions on their ability to access credit. Many states had laws that required a woman to have a male co-signer, typically a husband or father, to obtain credit.
4. Sports: In the United States, the passage of Title IX in 1972 was a pivotal moment for women’s sports. Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in education, including sports programs in educational institutions that receive federal funding. It mandated equal opportunities for women in athletics, leading to significant growth in women’s sports programs at schools and colleges.
It’s been one battle after another to ensure that women are seen and applauded for their place in society.
The beginning of our fight for solely being a woman started in the Garden of Eden when the devil chose the woman to manipulate instead of the man God had made. Some think it was because she was weaker. I believe it was because she was very special and if he could take her down, he could take Adam down along with her. His goal was to destroy man and woman and keep them from reproducing others who loved God. But his goal was not achieved. Instead God removed Adam and Eve from the garden and in Genesis 1:28, God blesses Adam and Eve, saying:
“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
This verse has been understood by many religious traditions as an affirmation of the value and sanctity of human life and the continuation of the human species through reproduction.
This verse also reiterates why Eve was special because in the Bible, Eve is the name given to the first woman, created by God as a companion for Adam. In Hebrew, the name “Eve” (Chavah) is derived from the root word meaning “to breathe” or “to live.” It is often interpreted as “life” or “living.” Eve is associated with the concept of motherhood and the idea of being a life-giver.
Now women are no longer needed to produce life because as this article below implies – government can produce them for us. Artificial wombs are on their way to making babies in the likeness of government-led bureaucrats. This is not a movie story line – it is happening. Read the entire article below for yourself and be warned. Share this article with others and become the women of this century who fight for “real reproductive rights” – the right to bear children and not to have them created in a lab.
So when you see more and more ways women are being erased, ignored and dissed, just remember this…you are special. The attacks on you have been monumental and that means one thing – you are important to the creator of the universe and He sees you. You are the life-giver!! If you weren’t important, the devil would not mess with you!
Protect your daughters. Protect your grand daughters. Stand up and be heard. You are here for such a time as this!
