As women we are always "givers" and very seldom do we "receive". We tend to put others first and ourselves third or fourth. We need to take time every so often and celebrate what we are and who we are. This world could not exist without us and I feel the celebration needs to be felt by everyone in all aspects of our lives. So, with that being said, lets talk about health..... breast health.
1 in 4 women will get breast cancer. Can you believe those statistics? When it comes to breast cancer, mammograms save lives. Annual screenings are essential because breast cancer starts small and without symptoms. It can take one to two years before a woman can detect a lump. We, at Valley Fabric are committed to helping women find the means to be screened and to help in early detection. So what are we doing about it?
On April 8, 2016 we will be having the Mammobile on site to serve the Women of Bridger Valley and the surrounding areas to have their mammograms done.
By having the Mammobile here in the Valley, it can reduce time away from the Family and Work. Several insurance companies are accepted and if you do not have insurance, the fee is $175.00.
We will be having several other fun events going on during the day, so stayed tuned for those.
Let's talk, giving to people in need.... The Pantie Raid. Starting April 1, 2016 we would love to have you bring in any undergarments that are new and wrapped in the packaging. After collecting these, we will be donating them to our local SAFV program.
Celebrate International Womens Day, March 8, 2016.
Celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.
We will be celebrating with Flowers and Fabric! What a great way to show our support.
Born at a time of great social turbulence and crisis, IWD inherited a tradition of protest and political activism. In the years before 1910, from the turn of the 20th century, women in industrially developing countries were entering paid work in some numbers. Their jobs were sex segregated, mainly in textiles, manufacturing and domestic services where conditions were wretched and wages worse than depressed. Trade unions were developing and industrial disputes broke out, including among sections of non-unionised women workers. In Europe, the flames of revolution were being kindled.
In 1908, on the last Sunday in February, socialist women in the United States initiated the first Women's Day when large demonstrations took place calling for the vote and the political and economic rights of women. The following year, 2,000 people attended a Women's Day rally in Manhattan.
In 1910 Women's Day was taken up by socialists and feminists throughout the country. Later that year delegates went to the second International Conference of Socialist Women in Copenhagen with the intention of proposing that Women's Day become an international event. The notion of international solidarity between the exploited workers of the world had long been established as a socialist principle, though largely an unrealised one. The idea of women organising politically as women was much more controversial within the socialist movement. At that time, however, the German Socialist Party had a strong influence on the international socialist movement and that party had many advocates for the rights of women.
