Mid-March Momentum: 10 Ways to Honor Women's Appreciation Month

It's not too late to celebrate!

The month of March is special.  It's partly special because its the month that we see winter go out and spring come in, flowers peeking out,  and our daylight time gets longer.

We've just reached the midpoint of Women's Appreciation Month. Maybe life was lifin' and you forgot to acknowledge its existence.  I want you to know and remember that it's never too late to start recognizing and celebrating the immense contributions and achievements of women throughout history and in contemporary times. This month serves not only as a period of honor and reflection but also as a call to action to continue the journey toward gender equality. While we've made significant strides, there's still much work to be done. So I'm writing  in hopes to reignite our collective commitment to celebrating women's achievements and addressing the challenges they face, offering practical ways to get involved in the latter half of the month.

Why should we recognize Women's History Month?  As women, we find ourselves in position the position to reflect on past accomplishments and evaluate what still needs to be done.  Giving mass attention to this month stresses and brings more light to the roles women played in shaping our society, breaking barriers, and the obstacles that women faced.  This month also offers time and space to educate, celebrate and give opportunities to take action, giving way to our future female historians.

By us acknowledging and celebrating this month, we ensure that the conversation continues that will lead us to higher and more achievements, gain strength, and visibilty.

Here are 10 Ways to Recognize, Celebrate, and finish out
