YWCA New Mexico


FREE ALBQ BOOK SIGNING for ladies “of a certain age”—and those who love them – at 1 p.m. SATURDAY, DEC. 7, at Barnes and Noble in Coronado Center – (Idea: it makes a great holiday gift! Come meet the author, and enjoy!)
-- Lloyda Albach’s delightful book, “Bedtime Stories for a Lady of a Certain Age,” is bringing smiles to older folks – both ladies and men. She says, for example: “When I write about slipping south, it’s not about crossing the Mason-Dixon Line, it’s about my skin slipping south in a surprising number of areas!” 😊
-- Albuquerque author Albach asks: are DEPRESSION BABIES (1929-1939) our “lost” American generation? Who has recorded their stories? They’re not the “Greatest Generation,” born before 1928 -- They are truly named our “Silent Generation,” born to Depression-era parents.
-- NOW some of their stories ARE being told, by Albach in her current book, "Bedtime Stories for a Lady of a Certain Age." It's available at Barnes and Noble... and wherever books are sold.

The YWCA New Mexico's mission is the elimination of racism and the empowerment of women.

“Men have to be on board. You can change women all you want — if you don’t change men, nothing changes. Because we share the world.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie explains why men are important for the feminist movement:

A Mighty Girl

Congratulations to Tammy Duckworth who just became the first US Senator in history to give birth while in office! Duckworth and her husband, Bryan Bowlsbey, named their daughter Maile Pearl after her husband's great aunt, Pearl Bowlsbey Johnson, who served as an Army nurse during World War II. Since she began representing Illinois in Congress, first in the House and now in the Senate, Duckworth has said that her experiences as a working mother give her an important -- and underrepresented -- perspective in the halls of Congress. She has often sponsored or co-sponsored legislation to help parents and families, including bills focused on affordable child care, paid parental leave and other infant and maternal health issues.

Duckworth spoke to this topic in an announcement about today's birth: "Parenthood isn't just a women's issue, it's an economic issue and one that affects all parents — men and women alike. As tough as juggling the demands of motherhood and being a Senator can be, I'm hardly alone or unique as a working parent, and my children only make me more committed to doing my job and standing up for hardworking families everywhere."

Best wishes to Senator Tammy Duckworth and her new Mighty Girl Maile Pearl!

Rise Up

In the sentencing hearing of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina did something incredibly unusual: She vowed to let every one of Nassar’s victims speak. And they did. Over 150 women and girls took the witness stand to explain the pain and trauma that Nassar’s sexual abuse had caused them. Many spoke of not being believed when they came forward with their stories—by parents, coaches, friends, police, USA Gymnastics or the United States Olympic Committee.

Many have compared Aquilina to a therapist, as she spoke after each victim statement, offering words of support and encouragement. “You are no longer victims, you are survivors,” she told the women on Wednesday.

By giving the floor to these women and girls, many commentators believe Aquilina has not only created space for them to heal from their trauma, but also made a powerful case for believing victims when they come forward.

Aquilina has sentenced Larry Nassar to 40 to 175 years in prison.
