#ThrowbackThursday National Women’s History Month

Each year, the month of March is observed as National Women’s History Month, as designated by presidential proclamation.  The time is set aside to honor women’s contributions to building our great nation.  From the challenges of being first settlers, to pioneering the journey into modern-day law enforcement, the women in our history always sought for more; they put dreams into action to better their lives, help others grow and improve the world around them. 

 

Our matriarchal predecessors already knew their worth, but with each personal, social and political milestone, they inched toward a greater recognition of equality and appreciation.  In addition to balancing the everyday challenges of being wives, mothers and sisters, they took on professional roles in careers outside the home. 

 

They became bosses, business partners and held positions previously reserved only for men.  As roles evolved, so did women’s apparel; they wore pants.  They faced extreme obstacles on the job and were respected for standing up to them.  Thank you, women from our history, women of our recent past and women of today, all of whom inspire the women and female leaders of tomorrow.
