As we wrap up another Women’s History Month, I thought it would be interesting to share with you that the National Women’s History Alliance has selected its “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.” The organization chose this year to honor women who have “led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results.”
I love that this group of women was honored this year. It’s an important reminder that, even in the face of having their rights put at risk, women are going about their lives every day, practicing nonviolence on large and small stages and teaching the next generation to do the same. Read more about this year’s honorees.
I’ve really enjoyed celebrating Women’s History Month on my blog throughout this past month. If you missed them, please check out my posts about My Favorite Female Political Figures, My Favorite Female Authors, and The Most Influential Women in My Life – some famous, many not. I hope you’ve had a great month – let’s keep the momentum going and continue to celebrate the strong women that make this world go ’round!
