Re-learn your history

Re-learn your history: Find out about powerful women who have shaped our society and teach your children and other youth about their contributions.

“Some leaders are born women.” – Geraldine Ferraro

When we learn about leaders in our history who have shaped our society, we rarely hear a woman’s name. Even in our society today, women are still largely absent from leadership in many fields.

Take the time to learn about female leaders who have made and are making a difference in your local communities, nation and throughout the world. Teach children and youth in your life about their work. Explain to them that both men and women can strive to achieve any dreams and goals they may choose to pursue.
