March is National Women’s History Month
by Christene Harvey
Since this is National Women’s History Month, I thought I’d put in my two cents worth and share some of my favorite WWII working women photos. My personal admiration cannot be put into words for the strength and character of women throughout our history.
From the wives of our Founding Fathers, who lost everything but their responsibilities when their husbands made stands to make us a nation, through the female unsung heroes throughout the western migration, to those who faced down ridicule and rejection as part of the suffrage movement, through housewives filling vital roles in World War II … to now,… If not for those bold women who came before, where would we be today?
Personally, I salute them. And I give thanks to God that these women had the God-given intelligence, strength, and fortitude to forge onward.
