Contrary to what some may think, the power of a woman is fierce, strong, heroic and mind-boggling. Although progress has been made throughout history, women have faced and continue to face inequality in various industries such as the workforce, arts, literature, politics, religion and film. I love this quote by William Golding (1911-1993), “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men…they are far superior and always have been.”
Throughout the month of March, we are celebrating National Women’s History Month. Women have been the glue to hold families, businesses, and organizations together, with or without recognition. Yet, those days of ignoring the important role women play in our everyday lives are a thing of the past. Women are resilient and demand to be seen and heard. No longer are voices stifled and visions hidden. Women are and always have been the pioneers of innovation, leadership and community outreach.
The theme for this year’s National Women’s History Month Celebration is “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business.” Here’s one of my favorite blasts from the past, “I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy.
