Today marks the start of Women’s History Month.
Even if I shared the histories of 10 women each day for the 30 days in this month, I would still have to leave a vast number out. There aren’t enough days in a calendar year to give credit to the women who have tilted the world on its axis and made pivotal changes.
Women are the backbone of the world. We are the voice. We are the motion.
Starting tomorrow, and over the next month, I will share the stories of some of the women writers who impacted my decision to put pen to paper in a way that my voice is not only heard, but understood. I will also share the stories of some of the women who did not write, but who were determined enough that they were written about.
To be a woman is to be someone’s strength. To be a woman is to be the face determination. To be a woman is to be a blessing.
