March is Women’s History Month. Now, more than ever, girls need inspiration to help build up and motive themselves. Women’s History Month commemorates all those who have contributed and made a difference in American History and every year since 1987, we have been celebrating all that they’ve done and continue to do. The National Women’s History Project recognizes and promotes these women by providing information, educational materials, programs, and choosing themes each year to mark the beginning of Women’s History Month. Themes like 2020’s when we honored Women who fought for voting rights or in 2009 when we honored Women for taking the lead to save our planet. You can find a full list of themes for Women’s History Month here.

The organization is determined to recognize and celebrate the important roles of multicultural suffragists and voting rights activists…their voices will not be silenced! The honorees are:
