In 1987, Congress declared March Women’s History Month. Once a year, we set one month aside to celebrate the achievements of half of the population. I think it’s important to remember the women that came before us that contributed to every facet of society from politics to the arts. It’s easy to take these contributions for granted because we live in a day and age when we can vote, go to any school, and apply for any job . . . but that was not always the case.
Each year, M.I.S.S. highlights the achievements of talented, smart women in our Women Making History series. Today, we begin this project with honoring our mothers, aunts, sisters and grandmothers. The women who raised us, cared for us and made us who we are. Without them, and the paths they have carved for us, we would not have the privileges we have today.
