Now that Black History Month has ended and March has begun, we have the privilege of celebrating another vital month in the calendar year: Women's History Month.

With roots dating back to 1857, when women in New York City factories protested poor working conditions, this month has the opportunity to highlight the many accomplishments that women have made. And to spotlight how women's accomplishments will continue to inspire many future generations.
