March: Women’s History Month
March 8, 2021: International Women’s Day
It’s the time of year where we make an added effort, allot added time, to recognize the contributions and achievements of women throughout history.
This month I think it’s notable and relevant to discuss how women, always but especially in the time of COVID, have been instrumental leaders, and the backbone of our planet’s survival. Whether they led their country in incredibly successful containment and lockdown efforts–cheers to Taiwan, New Zealand, and more–or their gendered work (childcare, eldercare, sewing, cleaning, etc.) was the very reason we survived, women’s contributions–big and small–their assigned work and the work they chose, has always deserved more than we have given . . . so this month, make sure to add lessons, discussions, and more to the calendar, in honor of Women’s History Month.
