A Litany for Women written by: The Seven Kallahs

International Women's Day was March 8th, and on this day, Eesha's Kallahs held a special service, which included a Litany for Women: a healing recitation of prayers for women of all walks of life, and the men that support women's access to equality. This was such a powerful Litany that we felt it appropriate to share now, with you to keep the healing energies of uplifting women, not just one day a year, but every day of the year.
