March is Women’s History Month. Amid this thirty one day period, many fun, informative events will take place on local and national levels to celebrate and support women from all walks of life. Few would argue that women have been a powerful force– from politics, to business, to the fields of medicine, technology, education, and even the arts.

THIS JUST IN…

Reportedly, Brawny Paper Towels has also gotten in on the action of honoring this month, by replacing its “beefy” male image with a female figure for National Women’s History Month. This move supports their “Strength has no Gender” initiative. Learn more here: http://6abc.com/business/brawny-woman-replaces-man-for-womens-history-month/1785031/

Women’s History Month dates back to International Women’s Day, back in 1911. In February, 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980, as National Women’s History Week.
