Women's History Month recap March 1 - March 31

In 1981, Congress authorized and requested the president to designate the week of March 7 as Women's History Week. In 1987, Congress declared March as Women's History Month. After 32 years of spending the month of March to recognize the impact that women have had in society, we highlighted some great achievements for women. With all stories written by women, here's a recap of the Women's History Month Series.

"We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women's voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored" - Sheryl Sandburg
“Women have to harness their power — it’s absolutely true. It’s just learning not to take the first no. And if you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner” – Cher
“We have to fight the entire time, we can’t start at the end when it’s getting down to crunch time. We can’t leave anything on the floor” – Kerri Walsh Jennings, Olympic volleyball player
