Who run this motha!? GIRLS! It is officially Women’s History Month and we could not be more excited. It is no secret that women have not always been written about in history books and like the great species we are, some great women decided to exhume change. In 1978, the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women initiated a “Women’s History Week” celebration which soon bloomed into Women’s History Month. By 1986, 14 states had already decided to deem March the month to celebrate all things woman. A year later, Congress made it official. So in the spirit of this glorious month, we know you are going to be protesting and fighting the power and we want you to do it stylishly. Here are some fun, bold and socially conscious items to keep the hope alive.
