Ever since the beginning of time, women have been known to take action and lead with a caring heart and a determined mind. Beginning as only one day a year, National Women’s History Day was changed to the whole month of March to give more time to honor all the women in history, deservingly so. This month, we should take time and appreciate all the women who contributed to make the world what it is today.
There’s no doubt about it, women are more empowered now than they ever have been. Forty-six out of fifty states elected a woman as at least one of their U.S. Representatives in the White House. Almost half of New-York’s Best-Selling Novels are written by women, the top seller being a woman. By celebrating women’s accomplishments of both yesterday and today, we’re encouraging the ladies of tomorrow to continue to be empowered and change the world for the better.
