Greetings of love and gratitude from
Iron Jawed Angels Today.
In the film “Iron Jawed Angels,” we got a glimpse of the suffering
women endured in the U.S. in the early 1900’s. As they spoke out
for the rights of women to vote, to have autonomy, and not to be owned,
they were beaten, tortured, incarcerated, and force-fed if they tried
to fast in protest. Their sacrifices and suffering were not in
vain. Many more women in the world have freedom and rights today
because of those angels and others like them around the world.
However, as we know, there are still billions of women and girls being
raped, enslaved, and killed. When I say “billions,” I am
including all women and girls of all
What is at the root of this human-caused violence? Humanity, as a
whole, simply has not fully awakened yet from the barbaric mindset,
based in fear, that in order to be safe and feel strong, a person must
and has the right to dominate others—the more the better. The
result for animals?—billions of baby boy chicks killed, mother hens
never allowed to nest and shelter their youngsters under their wings;
mother cows repeatedly raped, robbed of their milk, and their children
kidnapped and either killed or forced into slavery; mother pigs raped
and incarcerated and robbed of their precious children whom they long
to care for; mother dolphins, whales, and other sea animals dying in
agony unable to protect their babes from the weapons of people.
The list of atrocities against mothers is almost too much to bear, but
with an iron will we must do so for them.
Prayers, Mourning, Honor, Respect, and
Let it be that this Mothers Day inspires a mass
awakening of humanity. May every person who loves and honors
their own mother, see with new eyes the tenderness and love that
motherhood brings to the world no matter who the mother is, no matter
what species she represents. May every person who loves their own
mother suddenly grasp, with deep understanding, that all mothers long
to care for their babies and suffer great sadness when they lose
them. May every person who respects and cares about human
mothers, open their hearts to all mothers and vow to go vegan in order
to stop the suffering of sacred motherhood. In honor of Mothers
Day, may all people become iron jawed and vegan angels and refuse
forevermore to support the violent industries that cause such immense
pain and death. We especially call on all human mothers to
recognize their heart-link and their kinship with mothers of all
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,

shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all
