(Black PR Wire) Women have truly come a long way. There was a time when women couldn’t vote, own property, join the military, or even wear pants. But times are changing and women are breaking the glass ceiling each and every day.
We have seen Black women accomplish many firsts; from Madam C.J. Walker, first Black woman to be a self-made millionaire to Ella Fitzgerald, the first Black woman to win a Grammy, we were trailblazers paving the way for others to dream big, and many did just that. Sistas like The Honorable Kamala Harris, the first woman and the first Black vice president of the United States; and The Honorable Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman United States Supreme Court Justice, have not only achieved tremendous success, they have forever shattered the glass ceiling in our nation.
Let’s continue to honor and uplift women everywhere and pay homage to those who have made it possible for us to be here today. As we recognize National Women’s History Month, Black PR Wire will also feature and honor “Sistas Who Succeed!” If you have a sista in your organization to recognize, be sure to send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
