Happy Women’s History Month! March is a great month for lots of reasons — the sun starts shining more, we can enjoy patio dining again, but most importantly, we get to celebrate women and their contributions. Women’s History Month is meant to commemorate and encourage the observance and celebration of the role of women in American history and on an even larger scale, International Women’s Day on March 8 takes it up another notch!

So this month, honor the women in your life, honor yourself, and read up on a few of the greats — think RBG, Harriet Tubman, and Eleanor Roosevelt.
