Celebrating Women's History
What do you know about Women's History? Are you curious? What are your plans for celebrating women during the month of March? Celebrating inspirational women who changed the world should be a year-round practice. For 31 days of March, we pay special attention to the women who blazed the trail for others.
This Lens celebrates Women, especially during March - Women's History Month. "The history of women often seems to be written with invisible ink." Even when women are recognized in their own times, they are often not included in the history books.
