March is Women’s History Month.
And what a time to celebrate!
For the first time ever, we have a woman Vice President — that's huge!
Women have made enormous strides in the past hundred years.
Though equal to our male counterparts, we haven’t always had the same freedoms.
It’s still an ongoing fight for change, but March is the perfect time to commemorate the progress that’s already been made.
Let’s honor these heroic women by teaching our girls (and boys!) about their legacy — and their impact on today’s society.
Pinna has put together a huge list of resources to help you celebrate Women’s History Month both at home and in the classroom.
