SPEAKING THE UNSPEAKABLE: Ms. Baker, Digital Design instructor, reflects on how women's role changed in the past 20 years and what Women’s History Month means to her personally. β€œI’ve seen a drastic change from being a young girl in middle school to now an adult women working in high school and going through college and corporate ladder of my working career. I’ve seen a lot more women be the forefront for a lot of companies, [and] having a woman in the presidential electrical ballet was major, that was history in itself”, said Ms. Baker. β€œ[Women’s History Month] is a month that highlights all of the women in the world because women are the birth of a nation, no matter where it is in the world, nothing can happen without a woman. Women’s history month shines a spotlight on things that go unsaid or unforeseen. I’ll like to see change but I know they are already happening."
