"I'm a woman / Phenomenally / Phenomenal woman, / that's me." --Maya Angelou
Every March is Woman's History Month in the United States. It is a time for all of us to honor the sacrifices, accomplishments and contributions of women throughout history. It is time to celebrate the opportunities and dreams given us by generations past. It is time to praise women! And not just women from the United States...This means women from all over the world.
During this month, this blog will reflect upon those great women of our past and present who have shaped history. Each of them embraced, struggled against society and endured hardships while triumphantly pursuing their cause, and in so doing, they have aroused and empowered generations of other women to do the same. But dissimilar and assorted as they were, all of these women had one thing in common. They were true to themselves; they were courageous and willing to fight for their beliefs. These are the women who changed history.
National Women's History Month has been celebrated in the United States since 1987.
