Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.
My husband’s favorites include Hatshepsut, Boadicea, Ayn Rand, and Amy Heckerling and I absolutely adore Oprah Winfrey. Who do you celebrate?
We have to take the time to celebrate women, and that entails taking the time to learn about our historical contributions. Celebrate all women in your life that are doing great things. I am only scratching the surface as I continue my journey and have branched out in ways I never considered when younger; I am now proud to be a part of The National Woman’s Association. It has been a true learning experience to be around women that are making a difference, inspiring each other, forming networks and the like. It has made me want to be the best I can in all that I do.
Speaking of networking, I had an opportunity to connect with a very accomplished individual from the National Woman’s Association, Karla Aghedo. What an incredible person!
As women in America, we eventually have to grapple with the tension between family and career. Honey, THAT IS NOT EASY! But what I saw when I “met” her (it was a virtual meeting) was so impressive: she showed up at the meeting with her 3 month old newborn in her loving arms! It would have been so easy to say, “I have a newborn baby, I don’t have time for a meeting with a women’s interest group.” But. Karla made no such excuse, instead humorously introducing herself and then her baby as the VP of her company! I loved it, and I knew at that moment I needed to interview her on my show at KKLA.
