As I head off the Women’s March with my two daughters and niece at too early an hour this morning, one person I wish was joining me is my sister. (She moved out to California over the summer.) If you are lucky enough to have one, I hope you treasure your friendship. Yesterday I was thinking that after the march, what’s next? How do we help each other as women and what do we do? I don’t know what the answer is, but all I can think is that we have to work together as if we’re all sisters. Sisters don’t always see eye to eye, but for the sake of family, they try to make it work. (As brothers do too.) I know all this sounds completely corny and sentimental but it’s the truth. I think if we advocate for each other like you would do your closest sibling we’ll go far. Here’s to sisters!
I love you and am so proud of you for marching. I watch in strength and tears and standing in spirit right beside you all.
Lovely photos – I didn’t know that Franca Sozzani had a sister! They look so alike.

Our relationships with our sisters is one of the longest relationships we will have in our lifetimes.
Complicated, funny, upsetting, solid, tumultuous, necessary….no one knows you better.
