As we celebrate Women's History Month, we'd like to take a moment to recognize some of the women who made it possible for us to have a voice in this very exciting industry.

THANK YOU to Nellie Revell, the first female publicist in the 1800s, who was also a news reporter who refused to have her work consigned to the "women's pages."

THANK YOU to Anne Catherine Hoof Green who, in the 1700s became the first American woman to run a print shop.

THANK YOU to Bozoma Saint John, Head of Global Consumer Marketing at Apple; Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube; and Isabelle Olsson, Lead Designer at Google. Thank you for paving the way for girls and women in technology.

Five Stars for The Women of The Rose    

Texas women have a well-earned reputation for big hair, big hearts, and Texas-sized tenacity.
The Women of The Rose is the story of such women - the kind who didn't let the "little" things like no money, no experience with non-profits, and no breaks in the glass ceiling keep them from launching what has become a 30-year investment in life-saving women's health. Dorothy Gibbons is sharing her story and the world is listening.
