National Women's History Month

"We must strive to build the future we want our children to inherit - one in which their dreams are not deferred or denied, but where they are uplifted and praised.  We have come far, but there is still far to go in shattering the glass ceiling that holds women back.  This month, as we reflect on the marks made by women throughout history, let us uphold the responsibility that falls on all of us - regardless of gender - and fight for equal opportunity for our daughters as well as our sons."
