Women's History Month

Women's History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history.  From Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks, the timeline of women's history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.

Here are the 12 women who changed the world:

1. Jane Austen ~ “The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

2. Anne Frank ~ “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

3. Maya Angelou ~ “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

4. Queen Elizabeth ~ “Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind.”

5. Catherine the Great ~ “Power without a nation’s confidence is nothing.”

6. Sojourner Truth ~ “Truth is powerful and it prevails.”

7. Rosa Parks ~ “I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free…so other people would be also free.”

8. Malala Yousafzai ~ “I tell my story not because it is unique, but because it is the story of many girls.”

9. Marie Curie ~ “Nothing in life is to be reared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

10. Ada Lovelace ~ “That brain of mine is something more than merely mortal; as time will show.”

11. Edith Cowan ~ “Women are very desirous of their being placed on absolutely equal terms with men. We ask for neither more nor less than that.”

12. Amelia Earhart ~ “Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”
