MARCH...National Women's Month

ยง In 1981, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution establishing National Women's History Week. The week was chosen to coincide with International Women's Day, March 8. (See Allsleeky's post [post 262311])

In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women's History Month, and the U.S. president has issued a proclamation.

March is set aside as a time to recognize and celebrate the many rich and varied contributions of women to the history and culture of the United States.

Every walk of life has been impacted and, in many ways transformed, by women of every race, color and creed. Women in business, the arts, aerospace, physics, the many sciences, medicine, education, sports, social reform, politics, etc., have left their mark.

As the first teachers of a society...a society's greatness is reflected in the greatness of it's women.

Well hello Dude...

Thanks for stopping by...I appreciate your comment.
The words of the James Brown song is still too true..."It's a man's world". However I am heartened by the rest of the sentence..."it wouldn't be nothing...without a woman or a girl".

Hi Free...

It is ironic isn't it. I raises my hackels that these legislators want to intrude into the realm of medicine...a matter that should be between a woman and her doctor. I'm also struck by the fact that these folks who profess to care so much for the unborn children...cut funds for foodstamps...homeless, the majority of which are children, education, childcare, healthcare, etc. I'm at a complete loss. Isn't it better to take care of the kids already here and aware of their surroundings?

Kiss

And yet, inspite of all the great words, there is still so much
inequality and troubles for women! Even in "developed" countries.
And they always have to pay the biggest price for old men's errors.

Well said! And/or the recognition of that greatness!

The human consciousness continues to expand and shift
in the most amazing of ways. A more expansive view
continues to be presented and women are there every step
of the way, one way or another...smart and brilliant women
who have a sense about what is needed when and where.

WOMEN have been key in more ways than will ever be fully acknowledged. If nothing else, not a one of the Men in the Policical arena or anywhere else for that matter would even be here if not
for the one who carried him in her womb and birthed him and then nurtured and walked with him into the world. We began to challenge
believe systems that were no longer serving on a global level many years ago.

The sixties were a really difficult time to be in the
workplace...and yet fair is still a word that amuses me.

Happy Women's Day, smart and beautiful one!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

KMS, I APPLAUD your blog, and the celebration of March as National Women's Month.

Combining this with your Rant about the s.f.moron(stupid f*ing), in OUR white house, the voting power that is in Women's hands should be utilized to enact change. Vote for a woman for any and every political office that is up for election(there would be few exceptions where this would not be the right thing to do).
The country needs a change, and what better way than doing it from within the system, The power is in the numbers, if the power is exercised. This should be an underlying theme in the Celebration of all that is Remarkeable about todays Women, exercise your power!!!

The door of opportunity and equality will remain closed until Women gather together and KICK IT DOWN!!
