From scientists and artists to activists and politicians, women have made significant strides in various fields, breaking down barriers and challenging societal norms. However, their stories have often been overlooked or overshadowed, making Women’s History Month an essential opportunity to shine a light on their achievements and recognize the crucial role they have played in shaping the world we live in today.
