This is a man’s world, but it would be nothing without woman or girl

March is “Women’s History Month,” but in order to really describe what this month means to other individuals, we have to really understand the definition of a woman. This month honors women in every community, many of whom have decided to devote their time, lives and talents to producing major projects in their community and the world. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” which recognizes the women of our past, present in all forms of media, podcasts, news, storytelling and our personal lives. We celebrate the countless women who have fought tirelessly and courageously for equality, justice and opportunity in our world. We are very detailed and mindful that we are building a legacy of unsung heroines who have taught and guided us throughout the course of American history and those who continue to shape the future. 

Women in this world continue to lead and advocate for  reproductive rights and be the heroes of racial justice and equal rights for the LBGTQIA+ community. Throughout history, many women of all backgrounds and races have opened doors of opportunity for generations of dreamers and doers. As leaders in the community, women have power over our economy, as first responders, service members, educators, doctors, child care workers and scientists. Innovators, entrepreneurs and essential workers in every industry, they represent the very best of being a women in America. The women in not only our community, but across the world, are working continually to advance  gender equity and equality through this month of celebrations. When things are withheld from women, the world will suffer because it needs women to continue to achieve great accomplishments and opportunities.  

Every woman has a story to tell and a gift to share with the world. As we recognize this month strictly for women, we are reminded of the struggle women had to face in the past and even today. The government, of course, is trying to tell women what they need to do when it comes to their body. Having an opinion about what a woman needs to do with her body is worse than touching an African American woman’s hair (don’t do it). The world needs to know that a woman goes through a lot in her life, so instead of restricting women with rules, celebrate and support them by allowing them to chase their dreams and give them the security for them to know that they are always doing the right thing!
