Women’s History Month
March is Women’s History Month! This celebration in the United States traces back to 1911 with International Women’s Day. Now, the entire month of March is dedicated to honoring women’s contributions in American history. We all have special women that have influenced our lives and there is no better time to show them the appreciation they deserve. Below are some ideas to give tribute to these important ladies and thank them for their contributions to enriching our lives while empowering other females.
Write a Thank You Letter
Write a thank you letter to a woman who inspires you. It is the little things that count and a short, sweet note showing your appreciation will go a long way.
Reminisce for Women’s History Month
Grab an old photo album and sit down with mom, grandma, or an aunt and remember the women who influenced them. Share personal history and stories that can be passed on to loved ones for generations.
Learn a New Hobby
Does the special female in your life have a hobby you would like to learn? Maybe she is an amazing cook or baker? Does she paint or make pottery? Ask her to show you how! Learning something new is a fun activity that you both can enjoy!
Support Local Women
Go Shopping for Women’s History Month
Support women-owned businesses. The number of women-owned businesses are increasing, but still represent the minority of business owners. March is a perfect time to support these small businesses.
Create a Memorable Experience by Giving to Others
Learn from or teach another lady how to crochet, knit, or sew. Make scarves or blankets that can be donated to local facilities. It is not only helping the community, but it is also quality time with a loved one.
Who does not love flowers? With the pandemic, it may be more difficult to visit an elderly loved one in an assisted living facility so sent them something to brighten up their day.
Have Movie Night
Host a movie night with the important women in your life. Watch a movie that embraces women from history, or something directed by a female.
