And the Women Candle represents the energy and the power of women gathering around the world. "We have done it for centuries, and all over the world. We have come together to harvest the grains in the field with which we would sustain our families. We have come together to make the quilts that kept them warm. We have come together when we haven't felt like it, but there was work to be done, miseries to be shared, and, mercifully, a good laugh to be had" Nancy Ancrum.
