The Center for Nonprofit Advancement proudly celebrates Women’s History Month, 2024. Throughout March, we honor the remarkable contributions and achievements of women throughout history, acknowledging their diverse roles and advocating for the preservation of their legacies.

While it is crucial for us to remember and continue to honor prominent figures such as Susan B. Anthony and Rosa Parks, it is equally important to highlight figures that were crucial to the historical progress made in women’s rights. People like Sojourner Truth, a passionate advocate for both abolition and women’s rights, whose powerful “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech continues to resonate; and Ida B. Wells, a fearless journalist and civil rights activist who fearlessly fought against racial injustice and lynching in America. These women exemplify resilience, commitment, and an intersectional approach to justice, serving as beacons of inspiration for generations to come.

As we pay tribute to the past, we also celebrate the achievements of contemporary women who are breaking barriers and shaping the future for a better tomorrow. Leaders such as Malala Yousafzai, a fierce advocate for girls’ education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate; Raquel Willis, an American transgender rights activist, writer, and media strategist, known for her work in amplifying the stories and experiences of trans women of color through media representation and storytelling; and Kimberlé Crenshaw, a prominent legal scholar and activist who coined the term “intersectionality” to describe the overlapping forms of discrimination faced by women of color.

As Women’s History Month draws to a close, let us renew our commitment to advancing gender equality and promoting the rights and dignity of all women. Together, let us continue to honor the trailblazing women who have paved the way for progress, celebrate the achievements of women across all fields and backgrounds today, and foster a reality where every woman, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status, has equal opportunities to fulfill her potential and contribute her unique talents to the world.
