Her-story can be defined by me as any woman who is creating her own history that will encourage and inspire you to be a better person. However, according to Merriam Webster, Her-story is history viewed from a female or specifically feminist perspective.
It’s March and it’s all about us women. So let’s celebrate as it’s important to acknowledge the achievements and accomplishments of those who paved the way for us to be recognized, to be heard, and to be treated equally as men.
This month is set aside to honor women’s contributions in American Society. Notable women such as Harriet Tubman, Susan B Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Hilary Clinton, Michele Obama, Amelia Earhart, and Rosa Parks to just name a few.
We are going to honor and remember these honorable woman who have made an impact in our daily life and their fight for equality.
Woman’s Her-story Month is not just for famous people, it’s for the everyday woman in your life, who has made an accomplishment and who has broken any barrier. Anyone woman who has inspired and encouraged you in any way.
From the beginning of time, as women our contributions, achievements, leadership, and courage has gone unnoticed. As according to the Declaration of Independence we were all equal. However, we had to fight to get it.
According to the constitution written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, “all men are created equal“.
I encourage all women to continue in with the fight, work hard, and never give up.
I will leave you with a small snippet of Sojourner Truth famous speech from 1851 that she delivered at a women convention in Akron, Ohio. I found it to be very profound and still applies today. I hope you take this time to appreciate and recognize any woman who has made life “HER-STORY”.
Ain’t I A woman?
That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain’t I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman?
Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.
