March is Women’s History Month… what woman in history or present stands out to you when you hear of Women’s History Month?

This year’s theme for National Women’s History Month is “Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. In the United States, Women’s History Month traces back to the early 1900, when it was known as International’s Women’s Day.

The popularity of Women’s History Month has grown throughout the years and continues to become more and more popular, making many aware of the marvelous contributions of women and girls. So, again I ask… who stands out to you for Women’s History Month?
