What does Women's History Month mean to you?
To me, Women's History Month is about celebrating the brave women who have come before me. Women who inspired with their courage and powerful spirits relentlessly pursuing what they believed in. Women who demanded to be included in the words, "We the people". Women who sought more for themselves and future generations. Women who won against the odds. It is my desire to continue carrying the torch and keep it burning bright and strong so that one day we may all experience the promise of liberty and justice for all.
