The list of women I love to see breaking limitations and making history includes Oprah Winfrey, Kamal Harris, Michelle Obama, and MANY women who are making history in my life by demonstrating their perseverance and daily strength despite obstacles.
My story as a woman in today’s world is similar to most intelligent, creative, multi-faceted women who juggle careers, children, husbands and more while dealing with everything else society throws at us. Yet women find ways to press forward and get things done! I have had to raise three children while studying, working full time and in graduate school at the same time.
The Role of Women globally, particularly mothers – Caretakers, Planners, Farmers, Educators and Entrepreneurs. Starting from the home, throughout the world’s history, women’s central role in society has been to ensure stability, progress, and long-term development of children and nations. Women, notable mothers, play an immense role in decision-making about family meal planning and diet. The years since the first Women’s History Week and Women’s History Month celebrations have seen significant milestones in advancing women’s rights and equality in the world.
With all these contributions women have made to our respective community and the world, it is only fair to celebrate women. The month-long celebration this March is an excellent opportunity to acknowledge women’s contributions to history, culture and society.
Looking for ways to support and celebrate women?
You can start by volunteering for a local women’s shelter, women’s organization, women’s health clinic, and volunteering in your community. In March, take the time to give back to the woman near you who needs it the most. Mentor a young woman and share your experience and expertise.
