March:National Women's History Month 2014
National Women’s History Month 2014
Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment
Women Inspiring Innovation through Imagination
Each year, March is designated as National Women’s History Month to ensure that the history of American women will be recognized and celebrated in schools, workplaces, and communities throughout the country.
This year’s theme, Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment, honors the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women. Against social convention and often legal restraints, women have created a legacy that expands the frontiers of possibility for generations to come. They have demonstrated their character, courage and commitment as mothers, educators, institution builders, business, labor, political and community leaders, relief workers, women religious, and CEOs. Their lives and their work inspire girls and women to achieve their full potential and encourage boys and men to respect the diversity and depth of women’s experience.

Personal comment: This link will connect you to the women who were selected as "Women Inspiring Innovation through Imagination. www.nwhp.org/whm/2014nwhp_gazette.pdf Individuals need to be honored for their efforts and to share their examples with all of us. So, this blog is not filled with any cynical comments, no glib off-hand remarks, but sincere recognition to this year's honorees for energy, enthusiasm and determination that changed the world.
