Students, staff recognize Women’s History Month

March celebrated Women’s History Month.  Many used it as a time to recognize the accomplishments of women all over the world.

“[Women’s History Month] is a way to acknowledge the women making a difference and how women have changed society,” Kara Schultz, seventh grade visual arts major said.

People recognized many influential women during this time.

“There are always so many interesting figures from different time periods and from different places around the world. People such as Greta Thunberg and Malala Yousafzai really show us the rich tapestry of women’s history,” Claire Holmes, speech and debate teacher said.

Women’s History Month not only recognized the acts women had done, but also their tribulations.

“It is a special time to remember all the hardships women have endured and how far we’ve come.  From not being able to show our ankles in public, we can now be vice president or even president of the United States,” Lyra Radashkevich, seventh grade communications major said.

Students and staff had ideas about how to spread more awareness about Women’s History Month to the school.

“The school could have another showcase but everything is centered around women and what they have done for the arts,” Radashkevich said.

Some students and staff were encouraged by the celebration of this month.

Marina Dimarzio, eighth grade strings major said, “Back then some people were mistreated, and they rose above that mistreatment.  Don’t let anything stop you from achieving your dreams.”
