Continue The Celebration!


Women's History Month comes to a close we continue to educate, support and bring awareness to women's affairs. The creation of Women’s History Month is described on the WomensHistoryMonth.gov website as:

Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.

In honor of the many women who influence us, take big risks, stand confidently, celebrate their unique power, and are resilient against life’s challenges, I’d like to share with you some quotes by women throughout history:

· “The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.” – Serena Williams

· “Don’t ever make decisions based on fear. Make decisions based on hope and possibility. Make decisions based on what should happen, not what shouldn’t.” Michelle Obama

· “Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” – Marie Curie

· “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

· “We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential.” Hillary Clinton

· “I raise up my voice—not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard… We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” – Malala Yousafzai

· “At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.” – Frida Kahlo

· “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” – Oprah Winfrey


· “I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” – Rosa Parks

· “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

· “If you're always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” – Maya Angelou

· “The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity.” – Amelia Earhart

May these quotes uplift you, make you proud to be a womxn, and help you to remember your own unique amazingness!
