Women’s History Month allows us to not only celebrate the advancements, achievements and contributions of women to our society and the arts, it gives us an opportunity to recognize and thank the women who lead and support our organization. It is also a time to reflect on the work that still needs to be done to ensure equal treatment of ALL women.
The National Women’s History Alliance selects and publishes the yearly theme for Women’s History Month. The 2023 Women’s History theme, “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” is a welcomed tribute to women leaders in the arts: recognition of women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.
From the earliest storytellers through pioneering journalists, our experiences have been captured by a wide variety of artists and teachers. These include authors, songwriters, scholars, playwrights, performers, and grandmothers throughout time. Women have long been instrumental in passing on our heritage in word and in print to communicate the lessons of those who came before us. Women’s stories, and the larger human story, expand our understanding and strengthen our connections with each other.
