March 1, 2021, kicks off “Women’s History Month” in the US. What began as a movement in the early 1970s in Sonoma County, CA to get more educational resources on Women’s history into the hands of teachers and students, became an official week of remembrance by President Jimmy Carter in February 1980. He issued a Presidential Proclamation that the week of March 8th would be dedicated to Women’s History.
There have been countless amazing women who have graced the land we call home, whether in America or across the globe. The resilience, determination, tenacity, intelligence, and creativity exuded from women across the years is inspiring and fortifying. They truly are trailblazers for those of us who have come behind them, and we would do well to honor them by continuing in their stead.
From the right to vote to equality in the workplace, women have made great strides. There will always be areas for improvement, but we can celebrate during March the many victories already won!
Both Model My Home and HSRA are woman-owned businesses and we take great pride in honoring the strength and potential every woman and young girl carries within her. Our companies strive to promote growth, encourage those in our industry, as well as uplift the next generation of female doctors, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, business leaders, politicians, and clergy around the world.
Susan B Anthony stated, “The day will come when men will recognize woman as his peer; not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race.” This truth is timeless, and the fruit has been seen in every successful partnership of men and women working together for a common goal throughout history.
There is no limit to what a woman can accomplish when her mind is set like a flint. Many of us are privileged to live and work with such women. Women who will not be deterred by the ebbs and flows of life, and will not be cut down by any limitations placed on them by society or their own minds. She knows she can, and she will!
If you know a woman like this, reach out to her today and tell her how AMAZING you believe she is!!
