There are so many amazing women who influenced the way women lived and worked throughout history it’s impossible to identify them all. It wasn’t just the women who made headlines that we need to honor. It is also the ‘ordinary’ women: your mother, your grandmother, your neighbor, school teachers, secretaries…all the women we knew on a daily basis. Sisters, aunts, cousins, friends. We need to give thanks for each and every one of them.
But, yes, we do express honor and admiration for the women who stepped up and took on the challenges…women who insisted on being admitted to medical schools, who insisted on their rights to vote and hold public office, who still strive for ‘equal pay for equal work.’
What women do you think especially stand out when we talk about Women’s History Month?
