There’s a Women’s History Month (WHM) for many reasons: to acknowledge those who contributed greatly to our society over the years, to celebrate females and their endeavors, and to emanate the unapologetic identity of women around the world. Women’s history festivities first began as only a weeklong commemoration started by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Two years later, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed that the week of March 8 would be known as National Women’s History Week. In 1986, Congress expanded Women’s History Week to Women’s History Month, after the the National Women’s History Project petitioned for Congress to do so.  Since then, women’s history has been a celebration of femininity, self expression, and love.

For this month, continue to honor your mothers, your grandmothers, and your sisters. Whether your mother is the one who brought you into this world or your guardian, whether your grandmother is yours by blood or yours by nurture, whether your sister is biological or the one you’ve chosen, celebrate women, in all of their forms.
