March Is Women's History Month!

By Joy Rose
March is Women’s History Month. The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society – Let’s add the Museum Of Motherhood to that!

In addition to understanding the important roles women have played throughout HER-story, it’s important to advocate for the ongoing gender agenda issues.

The National Partnership For Women and Families promotes  fairness in the workplace, reproductive health and rights, access to quality affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. Founded in 1971 as the Women’s Legal Defense Fund, the National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 organization located in Washington, DC. Link
They are working to:
  • Ensure that all women have access to comprehensive reproductive health services;
  • Protect the relationship between a woman and her doctor;
  • Ensure parents have earned sick days and paid leave; and
  • End workplace discrimination so women receive equal pay for equal work.
The Senate resolution calls on our elected leaders to:
  • Protect and improve women’s access to contraception and other preventive services;
  • Ensure that women who rely on Title X, Medicaid and nonprofit providers like Planned Parenthood continue to get cancer screenings, birth control and other essential health care services;
  • Ensure that women have access to affordable insurance coverage for all pregnancy-related health care needs; and
  • Reduce health disparities between men and women and among women of different races, ethnicities and sexual orientations.
