“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”  

-Audre Lorde

March is Women’s History Month and March 8th specifically, is International Women’s Day. What does this mean exactly? It is a time to dive into the unending contributions womxn have made to our history and culture. However, it is important to do this through an intersectional lens, including women of color, undocumented women, women with disabilities, women with children, queer and transwomen. It is important to learn from our past, but we must also take meaningful action to eliminate disparities and pave the way forward to a truly diverse, equitable, and 

inclusive world. We have a long road ahead of us in order to reach gender equity, body autonomy and to have our voices heard. We have always supported womxn artists, business owners and philanthropists in this magazine, we will continue to do so and this month is no exception. The image above is from Denver artist, Emma Powell. Her work graces our cover and center spread. Be sure to see her work this month across the city for Month of Photography. We also shine a light on a new local author, Ellen O’Clover, as well as the local activist, Clela Rorex, who is sadly no longer with us. This world is brimming with brilliant womxn and we will forever be here to amplify their voices.

Your neighbors,
