March is Women's History Month: "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives" is the theme for National Women's History Month 2015. The theme presents the opportunity to weave women's stories - individually and collectively - into the essential fabric our nation's history. Accounts of the lives of individual women are critically important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do. The stories of women's lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience. Knowing women's achievements challenges stereotypes and upends social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish today.
