As we celebrate Women’s History Month, I’d like to recognize my Mama

In honor of Women’s History Month, I’d like to nominate my Mom (left), who taught me standing up for what was right is the right thing to do, for special recognition. (Photo of the Krenzer Twins: Author’s archives)

I grew up on the cusp of learning how to iron my man’s shirts and the promise of the ERA. I credit my Mama for leading me away from the former and firmly in the direction of the latter. I knew I could do anything I wanted to or was capable of because she did it in the years leading up to my liberation.
