Every March, Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to honor the generations of powerful and strong women and recognize the accomplishments of all women. Throughout our history, despite hardship, exclusion, and discrimination, women have strived and sacrificed for equity and equality in their communities. This Women’s History Month we would like to encourage you to embrace your feminine energy.
When there was disease or illness, it was the women that looked outside the box, outside their immediate surroundings, went out to the fields, gathered the herbs and flowers, used them as medicine, teas, tinctures, poultices and administered the nourishment and healing properties of the flower and plant kingdom to the sick.
With little education, and sometimes none, women relied on their instincts. They allowed their higher soul’s guidance to lead them on discovering the wealth of nature’s cures. Mothers have an intuitive and internal radar system that is ever so accurate; Moms just know.
There were many strong women in our history that understood the power of women and used it well to her advantage. Cleopatra, pharaoh of ancient Egypt used the power of yielding to get what she wanted; Not wasting her strength on fighting and locking horns; Sometimes knowing when to yield is a sign of strength, not weakness.
The feminine power is back and here to stay; We are strong, resilient, determined, yielding, courageous, beautiful, soft, kind, loving, intelligent, clever, adaptable, intuitive, connected to nature, clear on our higher soul’s purpose amongst other things.
Thank you for all those women in history who paved the way for all the generations to come. Let us celebrate their accomplishments and honor their achievements.
I applaud women on their inner wisdom, their radar and intuitive abilities; Women were and still are the nurturers who have the big responsibility of feeding their babies and slowly helping it become a child, teaching it all along on how to adapt and become an adult and cope with the world.
Today, and this month as we look back at history we celebrate women’s accomplishments and pioneer ventures; We want to highlight the many women who made a difference to mankind’s development.
Susan B. Anthony
Susan B. Anthony was a women’s rights activist known for her work during the suffrage movement in the early 1800s. Led by the Quaker teachings that every human is equal, she began collecting antislavery petitions at age 17 and spent her entire adult life fighting for gender equality and women’s right to vote. Although she passed away in 1906—14 years before women gained the right to vote—many leave their “I voted” stickers on her gravesite each election day as a way to say thank you for her contributions.
In 1983, the world watched as Sally Ride—an astronaut and physicist—became the first American woman in space aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger. She was the third woman ever in space, paving the way for future female scientists.
Aretha Franklin did it all: As a singer, songwriter, pianist, and actress, she quickly became a household name in the 1960s. After finding success with songs like “Respect,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” Franklin was known as the Queen of Soul and was the first woman to ever be elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
There’s a reason you immediately recognize Amelia Earhart’s name. In 1932, she became the first female pilot (and only the second person ever) to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She went on to become a best-selling author and a cofounder of The Ninety-Nines, an organization of female pilots. In 1937, Earhart went missing during a flight over the Pacific Ocean.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Known for her iconic collars, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a justice on the United States Supreme Court from 1993 until her death in 2020. She graduated first in her class at Columbia Law School, and was the first woman (and only the second woman) to ever serve. She spent much of her career fighting for women’s rights and gender equality, and has since become an icon for the feminist movement.
Eleanor Roosevelt was the longest-serving First Lady of the United States, but she did much more than simply support her husband in the presidency. Although it was a bit taboo for a First Lady to speak on such issues in the 1960s, Roosevelt was outspoken about the civil rights movement. After leaving office, she went on to become the United State’s first delegate of the United Nations where she served on the UN Commission on Human Rights and helped pass the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
