A woman is like a tea bag—you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water. Eleanor Roosevelt
March is National Women’s History Month. The 2023 theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” This theme recognizes women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, news, and social media.
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.
Affirmation: I will tell my story in order to make a difference in the lives of others.
Coaching question: What’s one way you can share your story or the stories of other heroic women?
