Women’s History Month with Denita Campbell, MA
Women’s History Month is a time to honor the women who have made important sacrifices and contributions to society in both the past and present.
The 2023 theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Stories,” which recognizes “women who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, blogs, podcasts, news and social media,” according to the National Women’s History Alliance website.
Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.
