March is Women's History Month

March is Women's History month. This is not as well known as Black History Month and most schools do not celebrate Woman's History Month.
Last year when I was a Moderator on Hillary's Village I worked on a Woman's History thread and was amazed about a lot of different things that women have done throughout history. I want to know why this is not celebrated in schools. Are girl children supposed to continue to think they haven't paid any part of history. They just were the mothers, daughters, and sisters of men.
It is time for schools to celebrate Women's History month. March is special for me because I now have two beautiful granddaughters who were born in March.
I have a brand new granddaughter born on the first day of Spring in 2010 and another one who turned one. I am watching my children become adults. I am celebrating not only the history of women but also the future.
