Did you know March is dubbed “Herstory Month”? That’s right!
Every day is the right day to celebrate girls and women and we love having a month dedicated to celebrating all of the magnificent women who have come and gone before us, and those who remain strong voices today.
According to the Smithsonian Institution, Women’s history month was intended to amplify women’s voices to honor the past, inform the present, and inspire the future. This helps to ultimately deepen our understanding of women’s contributions to America and the world, showing how far women have advanced, and how we as a country value equality and the contributions of all our citizens.
