Merriam-Webster dictionary defines SISTERHOOD as the solidarity of women based on shared conditions, experiences, or concerns. And during the month of March, we celebrate Women’s History and Sisterhood as it is a culmination of both the shared conditions, experiences, and concerns of the past of women, as well as the current state of our womanhood.
Also taking place this month are the confirmation proceedings of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is vying to be the first Black woman to join the U.S. Supreme Court. Dozens of Black women’s organizations have immediately backed Judge Brown Jackson, as we witnessed her unique accomplishments and saw how they were being discredited. This is a bond, or a sisterhood, that many highly qualified women historically have experienced and aim to uplift other women to so that they may be triumphant.
