Women’s History – Seriously?

Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history, she learns she is worth less. ~ Myra Pollack Sadker

History helps us learn who we are, when we don’t know our own history, our power and dreams are immediately diminished.

Multicultural American women are overlooked in most mainstream approaches to U.S. history. The National Women’s History Project champions their accomplishments and leads the initative to write women back into history.

Recognizing the achievements of women in all facets of life – science, community, government, literature, art, sports, medicine – has a huge impact on the development of self-respect and new opportunities for girls and young women.

National Women’s History Month celebrates women from American’s past, present, and future. Women who have successfully challenged and changed the role of women.

These women have stood out from the crowd and took on different roles to help our nation grow. To help honor, National Women’s History Month, Stream Companies created a poster to recognize five Fierce Females. Some of the females mentioned include Gloria Steinem, J.K Rowling and Oprah Winfrey.

Each has overcome different obstacles in their lives and are great role models for females everywhere.

Women’s History – Seriously? Yes, seriously.
