March is Women’s History Month


Samantha Robbins, Contributor

The month of March is a time to celebrate all women and their contributions to society throughout history. There have been many incredible women who have shaped our society and let women have the freedoms they do know.

Some incredible women include Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Staton who brought light to how women should have the right to vote. They were able to kick off a huge women’s rights movement that eventually got the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote, ratified.

Rosa Parks is also an amazing example of women changing our history for the better. She sparked a huge civil rights movement that brought forward the issue of segregation by standing strong and not giving up her seat on the bus to a white man.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg challenged the notion that women weren’t fit to serve on any jury service. She believed that women should be treated equally when under the law and have equal opportunities that men do. This then sparked a campaign for gender equality in the United States.

Some other great women in history include the following:

  • Marie Curie
  • Anne Frank
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Malala Yousafzai
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
  • Serena Williams
  • Kamala Harris
  • Rosalind Brewer 
  • Kathryn Bigelow
  • Halle Berry

These are just a few examples of legendary women who have spoken up when no one else would and made a change to society. Without any of these women, society may not be where it is today, and women today are capable of changing tomorrow. Happy Women’s History Month!
