Howland Salutes Her Opponents on International Women's Day
By: Howland for Congress 2018
Howland said, "I was raised by a single mom in Detroit and grew up with the knowledge that strong women can achieve anything they want. As a teenager, I often heard others say that girls don't need to go to college, but I knew that education would bring me new opportunities. I didn't want other girls to ever be told what their limits should be, so I became a teacher and later, a school administrator.
Today, as a community college trustee, I advocate for women to make sure they have every educational opportunity that they need to get ahead. I know that women can achieve whatever they want when they put their minds to it. In Congress, I'll fight for women around the globe so that no one ever underestimates their power."
