Women’s History Month 2016–My Anthology of Amazing Women


Just a little under an hour left in this year’s Women’s History Month and I don’t want it to end without me taking the chance to thank all you readers, and commenters, and followers for taking the time check out the women I wrote about this month.

Above all, I want to thank these women I had the good fortune to write about. The time I got to spend learning about them and writing about them, is time that wasn’t spent despairing about all the bad stuff happening in the world. These women have made a difference in people’s lives.

Below is a list of all the women I discovered this month, along with the link to their page. Take care everyone.
