Where are we 100 Years Later?


 “How simple a thing it seems to me that to know ourselves as we are, we must know our mother’s names.” ~ Alice Walker.

When Author and Poet Alice Walker wrote this statement as part of an essay, In Search of Our Mother’s Garden: Womanist Prose, she was talking about discovering our identity by learning who our biological mothers and grandmothers are. This holds true for learning about women’s history as well because it is equally important in identifying who we are as women and where we’re headed in the future. How much do you know about women’s history? How much do you know about the history of the women in your culture and in your family? I ask one more question, is it important to you that you teach these histories to your daughter as well as your son, or that they learn about their past from others? This month, challenge yourselves to take part in this particular historical women’s movement and celebration that has existed for over 100 years: International Women’s Day, March 8th. On this special day, we honor so many courageous female leaders and activists, past and present, for what they have contributed to women’s equality in education and in the workforce. There are several events in which you can participate in throughout Women’s History Month. I posted this video to acknowledge those that fought for women’s rights so that we can dream without limits.
