”Women should be celebrated every day, but a month dedicated to female empowerment is extremely special. It doesn’t just honor the iconic women who have changed history, but encourages new generations to dream big and know that anything is possible.”
— Molly McCook
Welcome to March, and Happy Women's History Month!
Since 1988, U.S. presidents have proclaimed the month of March as Women's History Month to honor the countless historical contributions women have made to society; many of which had been either unrecognized, or undervalued. Let us salute the phenomenal women in our lives, both past and present.
“I am a woman
