March: Women’s History Month

By Ann Varner

March has officially arrived and with it comes Women’s History Month! Since 1987 the United States has observed March as Women’s History Month. During the month we recognize the achievements of women throughout history and today. When we remember these women we can become inspired, empowered, and enlightened. History helps us to learn about ourselves and remind us to continue to strive for greatness.

“Each time a girl opens a book and reads about a womanless history, she learns she is worthless” –Myra Pollack Sadker. As women of today we will eventually become women of history, and my personal goal is that no girl in the future opens a womanless history book.
