What does Women's History Month mean to you?
It is a time for us to remember and honor all of those women who have paved the way and who have fought for our rights. From our mothers and grandmothers, we are the legacy of their truths and we are encouraged to keep the memory of our ancestors alive by never giving up until we are all truly equal. It is also a time for us to look forward to the possibilities so that the next generation of women can step into their greatness.
