Historical Women Healers and Quotes

In this era of health awareness, women are still the ones who lead the conversations. There are many reasons for this. Often, women are the ones who suffer the most from health issues or who are the ones who care for their sick relatives. Yet, in the past, women were not heard or encouraged to speak up, even when they had the most challenging of times with their health.  One report describes some of these female health concerns as follows:
Historically, life was particularly difficult for most women.  Aside from the numerous dangers and diseases, women became wives and mothers often when they were just emerging from their own childhood.  Many women had a large number of pregnancies which may or may not have been wanted. In the past, childbirth itself was risky and not infrequently, led to the death of the mother.
Most women in the past did not live long enough to be concerned about menopause or old age. In 1900, a woman's life span was about 50 years. Now, in the new millennium, average life expectancy for American women is 82 years of age, and it is
continuing to rise. Not only are women living longer, but they also can anticipate the possibility of enjoying a better quality of life throughout their span of years. In order to accomplish this, it is essential that women take charge of their own bodies and that they comprehend how they can maximize their personal health and fitness.
Taking charge of one’s body is easier when there are resources, such as doctors.  For many women, there were not always physcians for women to visit, and not always health care providers of color, much less black women doctors.  Yet women always found a way. Here are brief bios of two historical black women doctors who were dedicated, inspired and found a way to help and make a difference healing others. Read more...

The Ward 5 Democratic Committee is extending an invite to DC Democratic State Committee Candidates to attend its next Ward 5 Dems meeting to be held on Monday, April 23, 2018 at the UDC Bertie Backus Campus located at 5171 South Dakota Avenue, NE.  Free parking can be accessed from Galloway Street.  
Our regular business meeting will go from 6:30 to about 7:30pm, at which time the meeting will open up to allow each slate 10 minutes for introductions and to let the audience know why you are running. The Ward 5 Dems would ask each slate to allow those Ward 5 At-Large and Committeeman/Committeewoman candidates be given time to speak since the membership is keenly interested in hearing from them.  Individuals who are running for Committeeman or Committeewoman who are not on a slate will be given two minutes to speak.
Candidates running for National Committeeman, National Committeewoman, United States Shadow Senator and United States Shadow Representatives will also be given 2 minutes to speak. 
DC Democratic State Committee Chair Anita Bonds will give an overview of the DCDSC and its mission, as many members are not familiar with the organization.
It is requested that your literature and signage remain on the outside of the building. 
Please RSVP to me. 
Kind regards,
