I do apologize this is coming out a little later than I had wanted. I was hoping to have found a guest writer, but alas, everyone is busy.
March 2021 marked the 34th Annual Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month did not begin as a month, it began with a week-long celebration. “President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8th as National Women’s History Week.” In 1987, thanks to the activism of the National Women’s Project, it was expanded to a month-long celebration.
Women’s History Month highlights the contributions of women to events, history, culture, and society. It is a time to reflect on the often overlooked contributions of women to the United States (and other countries) history.
Here are a few women that should be celebrated for all they did – not just for women but for well… everything they did!
- Susan B Anthony
- Abigail Adams
- Rosa Parks
- Sojourner Truth
The 2021 theme “Valiant Woman of the Vote: Refusing to be silenced” recognizes the battle for women’s suffrage. This battle was not carried out on Social Media or the Internet. It was boots on the ground: speeches, petitions, demonstrations – these were argued and argues again until, 1920 and the 19th Amendment.
The right of Citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on accord of sex. Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.The United States Constitution
