As women we like to gather
We have the ability to connect
It is our way of networking
It is our way to reach for that glass ceiling
That still eludes so many of us
It is our way to let people know
That being a homemaker
Is not just being a housewife.
We gather to learn from each other
To remind each other we have come a long way
But we have not yet reached the mountaintop
To many women still suffer from violence and abuse
So we gather and push forward
We will spread our message from woman to woman
Like a honey bee that buzzes from flower to flower
Come and gather with us
We are all women of the world
And someday we will be heard.
