Collect for International Women's Day

Holy One, in this week of International Women’s Day, we give thanks for your daughters who have raised their voices for justice, from Esther and Deborah to Wangari Maathai and Aung San Suu Kyi. We pray for the end of gender discrimination and gender violence, and we look with hope toward the day when all of your children are free to use the gifts you have given them to do your work in the world. Amen.
