The title of this publication can be read two ways: WOMANS-WORD and WOMAN-SWORD and both are right. When words are used correctly, they have power. They become an effective weapon to be wielded in the fight for equality and justice. And like a well-honed sword, WOMANSWORD, will be sharp, incisive, pointed and on the cutting edge of issues impacting the lives of women.
