The Future is in the History of Women

Filed under: General HR Buzz6:00 am

There has been a lot of talk this week on most media centers about the new book of the very driven and insightful leader Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook.  She recently released the book, “Lean In:  Women, Work and the Will to Lead.”  She encourages women to grow in their careers and as individuals while achieving a work/life balance.  As with most artistic endeavors, the book has drawn both applause and criticism.  She has bravely faced the press and been very open in her opinions for women to “lean in” to their lives and strive to be leaders.  While one thing may work well for one  woman it doesn’t always apply to another and vice versa.  Personally, I think it’s good to know how others do things, like being a successful business woman, becoming a better leader, mother, wife, or daughter, and even how to clean that feisty red wine stain!

Leadership is achievable for any woman that chooses that path.  Yes, it is a choice; one that requires dedication, determination, and sacrifice.  The website USA.gov announced that March is Women’s History Month.  Numerous government agencies contributed to the archives of the history of how generations of women have contributed to American society.  One hundred years ago, suffragists marched on Washington to promote women’s rights.  In recognition of the anniversary, the National Archives created a Pinterest board where you can view photos, letters, a cartoon, and other documents from that period.

The women we are today are who we are because of the women of yesterday.  Visit WomensHistoryMonth.gov to read about the various roles women have played in history.
