What is Women’s History Month? Let’s get deeper than an Instagram post.
We’ve often all heard the phrase, “Here's to Strong Women: May We Know Them. May We Be Them. May We Raise Them.” Well, what are we going to do about that? How can we empower the up-and-coming generation of women to be empowered enough to leave the world a better place than how they found it?
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane.
Each year International Women’s Day rolls around on March 8th, but did you know the whole month of march is dedicated to Women’s History? A whole month dedicated to celebrating women like Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Frida Kahlo, Maya Angelou, Kamala Harris…..the list goes on and on. All of these amazing women all seem to have something in common. When they didn’t see a clear path for growth, they created their own. They paved the way for success, advancement, and more badass influential women to feel empowered enough to create their own path.
Today, Women’s History Month has evolved into more than the dates that created it. As PacificU states, it's a time that provides an opportunity for us to reflect on the time, physical labor, and emotional labor women have historically contributed to advance opportunities for people of all genders. We continue to encourage you to challenge yourself this month and educate yourself on the outstanding opportunities that would not be available if it were not for women.
Moving forward lets all pledge to attract what you expect, reflect what you desire, become what you respect, and mirror what you admire.
