It’s mid-March and Women’s History Month is in full swing. Around the country there are events to support and empower women. Whether it’s an exhibit on women in the arts or a day of honoring women in STEM fields, it’s bound to be a month full of events you’ll want to get involved in.
National Women’s History Month has arrived at a great time, I might add. By studying the women of the past and present, as a society we can learn where our future will take us. Here are a couple of suggestions of women that motivate me, but the list does not stop here.
A COUPLE OF FEMALES TO CHECK OUT:
Malala Yousafzai-Human Rights Activist
Amy Sherald– Painter
Michelle Obama-Former First Lady of the United States
Greta Gerwig-Actress, Director
Ava DuVernay– Director
Aly Raisman-American Gymnast
Miley Cyrus-Singer, Songwriter
Lady Gaga-Singer, Songwriter
The Women of the #MeToo Movement
As I said, the list could go on and on and on. There are so many women who are standing up for women’s rights and making history every day. It’s important to remember to bring this month to a close by celebrating the incredible women in your life. Not all women making a difference are famous actors, artists or singers. To the women who made a difference in your path, show your gratitude. The movement starts closest to home.
