March is Women's History Month – commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.
As we celebrate Women’s History month, we honor our “Sheroes”, the trailblazers who endured great pain and trials that made life better for women of today.
Passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote.
Some of our historic trailblazers and their accomplishments are:
Harriet Tubman led 300 slaves to freedom. Grace Hopper invented computer programming. Dolores Huerta created United Farm Workers Union. Katherine Johnson was the mathematical genius of NASA who helped put an astronaut into orbit and then a man on the moon. Sally Ride was the first American woman in space. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought for women’s equality. Kathryn Bigelow was the first woman to win an Academy Award for best director. Justice Sonia Sotomayor is the first Latina of the Supreme Court. Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris is the first woman and first Black and Asian American high ranking United States official.
We celebrate these trailblazers and all phenomenal women. We have come a long way, with a long way to go!
GHNNC would also like to recognize the incredible women on our board of directors.
