Medical Mission Sisters, Associates and partners in mission joined hundreds of thousands of women, men and children at the Women’s Marches in Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City on January 21. A deep concern for the rights, health and welfare of all women and girl children has always been a primary focus of our mission. We “stand with” women of all races, faiths, ages and nationalities in expressing the importance of treating women with dignity, respect and as equals with men. As the March organizers stressed, there can be no true peace in our nation and our world without justice and equity for all.
