PINKK Celebrates National Women's History Month
During the month of March, we should all give a little extra attention to all of the amazing accomplishments of strong, determined women. Since 1987, the United States has formally recognized March as National Women’s History Month.
As we say in our PINKK message and support in our actions: "Every woman has a story to tell and gifts to share with the world".
So get ready, because this month is about honoring magnificent ladies, and we are ready to celebrate it to the fullest.
HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
Put it in writing
Think of a woman you look up to and admire. She can be someone in your personal life or a public figure. Write her a letter describing the impact she has had on your life. Your thoughtful gesture is sure to be appreciated. SEND a story to PINKK about a women you want to celebrate so we can spotlight her in our PINKK on POINTS over the next few weeks.

Have a girl's lunch
- Lunch, breakfast dinner—it doesn’t matter. Grab your granny, cousin Cheryl, or great-aunt Mimi and grab a bite to eat. Having the chance to spend some one-on-one time with the lovely ladies in your life is a great way to reconnect and remind them how much they mean to you. Who knows, she may even tell some interesting stories you’ve never heard before. We just LOVE storytelling and sharing! It can be virtual if you need but make sure to share with kindness!
Study up on women's history
- There are some excellent museums dedicated entirely to the accomplishments of women. If you don’t happen to live near one of these places, many venues set up special exhibits during National Women’s History Month and again there are online options to inspire!

WHY NATIONAL WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH IS IMPORTANT
We haven't given women their due attention
For many years, women weren’t acknowledged in historical texts. This isn’t because women weren’t in the midst of important discoveries or helping out with important conquests. It’s mainly because men wrote the majority of historical documents for thousands of years. In March, we dig deep to uncover many of the important roles women have played throughout history.
Women are inspirational
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.
It recognizes the strength and power of women
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 major things women accomplish each and every day. From domestic chores and carrying babies to fighting wars and governing countries, women are pretty darn amazing.
