March Message From Elizabeth Foster

As we celebrate the beauty of National Women’s History Month, I believe we can all be inspired by Vice President Kamala Harris and her 2021 Inauguration Day Speech:

“It is my honor to be here, to stand on the shoulders of those who came before me to speak tonight as your Vice President. In many ways, this moment embodies our character as a nation. It demonstrates who we are, even in dark times. We not only dream, we do. We not only see what has been, we see what can be. We shoot for the moon, and then we plant our flag on it. We are bold, fearless, and ambitious. We are undaunted in our belief that we shall overcome, that we will rise up. This is American aspiration and what drove the women of this nation, throughout history, to demand equal rights, and the authors of the Bill of Rights to claim freedoms that had rarely been written down before.”

Women’s History Month traces back to March 8, 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. This certainly doesn’t surprise me, nor should it surprise you, as we all know how powerfully determined the women of NYC truly are!

While women’s history month may feel like the best time to celebrate women, our actions will have the greatest long-term effects if we employ these practices often. We all need to take more time to connect with like-minded women and take action on our common concerns. Learning about women who have stood up for their rights and fought for what they believe is fantastic motivation. We all have the power to influence the direction our world is headed in, and National Women’s History Month reminds us of that respect and signifies bipartisanship.

So don’t hesitate to uplift yourself and other women all year round. Every woman has a story to tell and gifts to share with the world. Stop and listen to their stories and share your own story also. Women are inspirational and we are all fascinating human beings. Yet we need to recognize the strength and power that we each hold within us. It’s easy to get caught up in the grind of daily life, but this month is an excellent opportunity to put a spotlight on all of the things women accomplish each and every day. Women just like you and I. Inspirational women don’t only exist in history books — they’re all around us.

With gratitude,
