  • 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.”
