Maya Angelou: became a celebrated and influential narrative voice of American civil rights literature. She was one of the first African American women whose personally-focused writing was popularized.

Who are the women in your life? Are they mothers or sisters? Or friends? What about the women who inspire you? Your teachers or your coaches, your boss or your co-workers, even actors or athletes you look up to? In honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate all of them today, this month, and always. Their ambition. Their strength. Their courage. We celebrate Women’s History Month to remind ourselves of the accomplishments of women throughout the years to our culture and society. From science to politics, it is a chance to reflect on the women who lead the way for change.
