It’s March, and that means it’s Women’s History Month.
Did you know this celebration originated in 1981 when Congress passed a resolution authorizing Women’s History Week? Yes, I said “week,” and yes, I said “1981.”
Thankfully, Congress and future presidents passed additional proclamations extending the celebration to a full month. While I recognize the achievements of women past and present year-round, I am dedicating this month’s blog to all of you.
That means you, the mom who is working full time while managing online school for your children out of your living room. And you, the sister, who is caring for your aging and sick parents, all while advancing your career. And you, the grandmother, who is “FaceTiming” your grandchildren every day so they don’t forget the sound of your voice or the curves of your face. And you, the daughter, who just graduated from college and entering a world many of us are still trying to figure out.
If no one has told you today, wherever you are in life, I am so proud of what you’re doing – and how you’re knocking it out of the park since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. I know you’re tired, so take comfort in this: While female titans like Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt have left indelible marks on our history, you are making your own history every day! And that is definitely worth celebrating.
Celebrating Your Everyday Wins,
