This Week’s Theme – Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is an annual observance celebrated in March to recognize and honor the contributions of women throughout history. The event was first celebrated in the United States in 1987, and has since been recognized by countries around the world. The month is dedicated to highlighting the achievements of women in fields such as politics, science, technology, education, and the arts, as well as their contributions to social, cultural, and economic progress.

During Women’s History Month, events are held across the country to celebrate the accomplishments of women and raise awareness of the ongoing struggles for gender equality. This includes everything from panel discussions and film screenings to art exhibits and community gatherings. The month is also an opportunity to reflect on the progress that has been made towards gender equality, as well as the work that still needs to be done to achieve true gender equity.

Overall, Women’s History Month is an important reminder of the vital role that women have played throughout history, as well as the ongoing need to support and uplift women in all areas of life. It is a time to celebrate the achievements of women, acknowledge the challenges they have faced, and commit to working towards a more just and equitable world for all.

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” – Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

This quote is often cited as a rallying cry for women who dare to be bold, unconventional, and challenge the norms of their time. It speaks to the idea that women who play it safe and conform to societal expectations are unlikely to leave a lasting impact on history, while those who dare to be different and push boundaries are the ones who create change and inspire others.

Suggested Activity

Since you have a full month devoted for women’s history, you can divide your weeks or days and focus on a different aspect or group every time.
