Soldiers celebrate right to vote

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Vickie D. Stenfors, from Seattle, Wash., speaks to an audience of almost 100 deployed Soldiers during a women's equality day observance at Camp As Sayliyah, Qatar, Aug. 26, 2008. "It's nice to have a chance to talk about women's equality while overseas," said Stenfors after the ceremony. "We are all focused on our missions; 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Events like this help us pause and remember why we are here in the first place."

  • U.S. Army Capt. Shanna Charles, the lead contracting officer representative for Area Support Group-Qatar, speaks on the importance of equality for women during the Women’s Equality Day, Aug. 26. “Women’s equality means giving every woman a hammer, so we can collectively shatter these glass ceilings to pieces,” said Charles, who enlisted into the Army in 2001 in order to further her education. “This is the only way to show our sons and daughters what equality means, not just tell them about it.” As the guest speaker, Charles found inspiration from her predecessors. “Historically, women have struggled and fought for rights wearing invisible shackles,” said Charles. “Today, women stand on the shoulders of those pioneers who persevered so that we can tear down barriers and uplift sisterhood.”
