Why are we marching and what do we hope to accomplish?
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “A sufficient measure of civilization is the influence of good women.”
More than ever America needs the influence of good women. Since the Women’s March in Washington DC there has been a huge groundswell among the mothers of our nation hungering for the opportunity to counter the destructive influence of radical feminist agendas and share a much different message—one of hope, goodness, and decency.
The mom’s march for America is not a march where we walk down the street shouting and carrying signs. That has all been done before and what has it accomplished? This a different kind of march—a symbolic march uniting mothers who march every day to serve their families, strengthen their communities, and shape the future of our nation. This is a cultural march toward a higher standard of decency, civility and liberty.
The goal of the Moms March is to shine a light on the powerful influence of mothers on our nation and come together to stand for decency, truth, family, freedom, and the constitution that protects our divine rights as mothers.
Each year the United Nations holds the Commission on the Status of Women where representatives from hundreds of countries meet to discuss issues impacting women around the world. The two-week assembly is full of debates and negotiations with the objective of creating an outcome document of “agreed conclusions” which each country is expected to adopt. While the document is not legally binding, it is considered “soft international law” because it impacts social norms, public policy, and decision-makers around the world.
The mothers of a country mold its citizens, determine its institutions, and shape its destiny.

Righteous women in their circle of influence, beginning in the home, can turn the world around.
This year the big push of radical feminists representing the United States and European nations is to classify motherhood as “unpaid workers—women working at home, caring for children” declaring it a burden that needs to be recognized, reduced and redistributed. Of course, that means more government intervention, more taxes to pay for that intervention and more condemnation of our men and boys.
From the United Nations to our children’s schools, a small of group of women have been pushing their radical feminist ideas and agendas on our culture for over four decades and the impact has been devastating. Excessive taxes, government overreach, disintegration of the family, gender confusion and increased crime are just some the results of this radical anti-family movement.
In the annual letter from the Gates Foundation (Feb 2017) Melinda Gates said “the real issue isn’t how much time women spend on unpaid work—it’s how much time they don’t spend contributing to society and pursuing higher education or a career.” She further stated that given the opportunity women would “spend more time doing paid work, starting businesses, or otherwise contributing to the economic well-being of societies around the world. The fact that they can’t, holds their families and communities back.”
This is not only incredibly belittling to mothers; it completely disregards the fact that the most influential person in society is the mother because of her influence in the home. We are deciding at this very moment what the standard of humanity will be in the future, whether freedom will prosper and if families will thrive. As former president Ronald Reagan said, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
We need to dispel the darkness. The only way to do that is to turn on the light! We invite you to be a part of history as we embark on this grand adventure together, uniting our voices, encouraging and supporting one another as we raise the bar and shape the future of our culture and our nation.
