Women accomplish amazing things every day, and that’s always worth celebrating. But in March, we take special notice of women’s achievements as we observe Women’s History Month.
Women’s History Month is more than just a date on the calendar. It’s a chance to look back at the generations of women who have gone before us. It’s a moment to retell their life stories and honor the legacies they left behind. It’s an opportunity to learn from their struggles and build on the work they did.
Official histories sometimes leave out the contributions of women, but the truth is that women have been an integral part of every moment of history. The women who came before us were politicians and scientists. They were athletes and activists. They were artists, mothers, astronauts, musicians, soldiers, writers, and so much more.
