Room Full of Sisters

I just wanted to write about something I went to for work the other day. It’s called Room Full of Sisters. It is basically a bunch of woman who get together to celebrate being a woman. Lots of stories, songs, and speeches. Hillary Clinton was invited, but she was at the Sentate. Her entire staff was there however and her assistant read a letter sent from her. There was also crafts all around made by women.

I really enjoyed the day and felt better about being a woman afterwards. It is open to anyone to attend, and I think some of the women in our family should go next year. The ticket was $35, which covered a very good meal, and part of that goes into a fund. This years fund was donated to the RISE breast cancer foundation, local to Auburn. Every year they donate the proceeds to a women or girls foundation. Even younger girls can go, the owasco 5th graders were there!

Let me know if anyone is interested and I’ll have you put on the list to recieve an invitation next year. Coburn Design (my company) designs the invitation. It is held every year in March.

    “Sisters are doing it for themselves
    Standin’ on their own two feet.
    And ringin’ on their own bells.
    Sisters are doin’ it for themselves.

    Now this is a song to celebrate
    The conscious liberation of the female state!
    Mothers – daughters and their daughters too.
    Woman to woman
    We’re singin’ with you.
    The “inferior sex” got a new exterior
    We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too.
    Everybody – take a look around.
    Can you see – can you see – can you see
    There’s a woman right next to you.”

    You go girl- that is what is great about women- we support who we are-each other and have hearts that reach out especially for womens issues (since men don’t).This sounds wonderful- if I were there-I would go but I’ll be in spirit.
