Celebrate Women's History Month
Avery Vlassis

Women's History Month is an annual celebration that strives to recognize the accomplishments of all women – including countless amazing women who have worked to Break the Bias throughout history. This celebration traces its roots to March 8, 1857, when women from various New York City factories staged a protest over poor working conditions. The first Women's Day celebration in the United States was in 1909, also in New York City. Every Women's History Month has a different theme, The 2022 theme is "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope," according to the National Women's History Alliance. This theme not only honors the tireless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the Covid-19 pandemic, but also women of all backgrounds who have provided compassionate healing and hope for the betterment of patients, friends, and family.
