March is Women's History Month if you've been sleeping under a rock! Actually it's Women's HERstory month in our case. During the month of March we will highlight and introduce women who you may already know or who you need to know.
It is a well-known fact that women have been influential instruments in the molding of society as we know it. After all, they are the mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, Nana’s, Mawmaw’s, Abuela’s, Bibi’s, Nne Nne’s and Zumu’s of the world who have given birth to our ever-growing population. Not to take anything away from the rich history of male accomplishments, but Women have had a long, rich, fighting history to get where they are today. We would like to honor and highlight some of those very women from our local communities and beyond that are game-changers and trailblazers lighting the path to success for the generations to follow.
