Enough about March Madness!

What about Women’s History?  After all, between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed a resolution proclaiming March (Yes, the entire month) of each year as Women’s History Month. How many of you know about this year’s theme?  Women’s Education-Women’s Empowerment

Thanks to many tenacious women who paved the way and fought for the right for women to learn in our country, women now outnumber men in American colleges nationwide. Let us continue this work of  empowering, encouraging, and inspiring young women everywhere to strive to make a difference and to accept nothing but the best!

Here are some great words of wisdom, which hold true to this day.

“In a world where there is so much to be done, I felt strongly impressed that there must be something for me to do.”– -Dorothea Dix (social reformer)

“Men their rights and nothing more; women their rights and nothing less.”                          – -Susan B. Anthony (suffragist)

“Energy rightly applied can accomplish anything.” – –Nellie Bly (investigative journalist)

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”- -Ella Fitzgerald (Jazz singer)

“I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried.” – -Amelia Earhart (Aviator)

“How wonderful it is, that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”- -Anne Frank, Diary of a Young Girl

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”— Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

“Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.” – -Cherie Carter-Scott, If Love Is a Game, These Are the Rules

“A word is dead when it is said, some say.  I say it just begins to live.”- -Emily Dickinson
