THERE ARE NO WORDS IN IRISH GAELIC FOROur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

WOMEN ACCOUNT FOR APPROXIMATELY 50% OF THE CURRENT POPULATION.
THROUGH POLITICS, MEDICINE, ACADEMIA AND EVERY WALK ,
THEY NEED MORE REPRESENTATION
