These trophies are awards to the plights that we face as women.
Dolores Huerta wanted to help her students who came to class barefoot and hungry. Through her community work she co-founded the United Farm Workers Union. At 76 years old she continues to lecture and lobby for the UFW, a model used by global labor unions as a testimony to the rights of workers.
In our endeavors, our lives can be in danger, our pasts can haunt us, our vulnerabilities can be exposed.
Unselfishly, women strive to be all things to everyone; we endure the odds guided by our passion to care for our world families.
