WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
"CELEBRATING WOMEN WHO TELL OUR STORIES"
The National Women’s History Alliance has announced this year’s theme for Women’s History Month: Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories. We’ll be following their lead and highlighting not only women who have paved the way in all forms of media, but also women who are currently kicking butt and knocking down walls in every way imaginable. Spend some time this month showing your appreciation toward the women in your life and the women who have helped shape the world we live in.
