Let’s tell our stories.

Portrait of four successful women

Women’s History Month is celebrated worldwide to commemorate and encourage the study and celebration of women’s vital role in history. This celebration reminds us that by recognizing and honoring these accomplishments, we can continue building a better world for everyone.  The National Women’s History Alliance, which helped to spearhead the movement, has announced the women’s history theme for 2023, “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.”

Throughout the rest of 2023, the NWHA will encourage the recognition of women, who have been active in all forms of media and story telling such as print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more.  Here are three ways you can help recognize women accomplishments and share their amazing stories.

Host a book club

Host an in-person or virtual book club featuring books written by women or about women experiences.   Select a book that highlights how women have contributed to and inspired others to act. 

Volunteer some time to help others

This is a great time to help local shelters and community centers for disadvantaged women and low income women by volunteering your time.  

Mentorship for young women

One of the best opportunities we have during Women’s History Month, is the opportunity to inspire the next generation.  Take some time this month to encourage young women to pursue fields where women are currently underrepresented.. Through exposure to successful female professionals, young women can gain confidence and feel empowered that they can reach their goals. By highlighting female trailblazers we can spire future generations to dream big and believe they can also impact the world.
