March is Women’s History Month

Last year, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation sayingduring Women’s History Month, we recognize the victories, struggles, and stories of the women who have made our country what it is today.'”  Earlier this week, the NSPN team took a moment to reflect on some historical or encouraging women who have made a difference.  Here’s a few of the inspirational quotes shared by the team:

Hillary Ladig shared a Maya Angelou quote:  “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Tella Jones also shared a Maya Angelou quote:  “If you get, give.  If you learn, teach.”

Elizabeth Smith Miller shared a quote from her mother, Jacqueline Limage:  “Make sure to wash your hands… and wear a face mask… if you’re around someone breathing.”  (And she listens!)

Susan Harmon shared a quote from none other than the royal southern belle herself – Scarlett O’Hara: “Tomorrow I’ll think of some way… after all, tomorrow is another day.”

TC Cassidy shared a quote by Arundhati Roy. This quote speaks to most, if not all activists, including youth care and human trafficking awareness and prevention workers: “There’s no such thing as the voiceless; there is only the deliberately silenced and preferably unheard.”
