March 1, 2020 kicks off the official start of Women’s History Month! For decades now, March has been the designated time frame used to draw special attention to the remarkable ladies in our country who have made incredible contributions to our society.
Between remembering and appreciating Eleanor Roosevelt’s inspiring career, Maya Angelou’s vision and voice for justice, groundbreaking female pilots like Amelia Earhart, the fearless leaders of the women’s suffrage movement, and thousands of other exceptional examples, we all have much to gain from observing Women’s History Month.
Even today, history continues to be made through the efforts of influential females like Carmen Perez, co-founder of the Women’s March, Brené Brown, research professor, speaker and best-selling author Ava DuVernay, and so many more.
Besides independent reading and researching on your own throughout this period, many museums and community programs will be offering Women’s History Month events and exhibits, so be sure to check out what’s happening.
