Congressional Black Caucus Chief Recognizes Women's History Month

 


 

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement commemorating Women’s History Month.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month let us reflect on the generations of women who came before us and their many contributions that have brought us to this place in our history. Whether they were fighting for equal rights and equal pay in the workplace, marching for voting rights or working hard to provide for their families, we pause to pay tribute to the many heroinesboth known and unknown.

“I have been blessed to have a number of women in my life who have helped to shape me into the person I am today. From my mother Mildred Massey to Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm– these women played an intricate role in my decision to become a public servant.

“In the spirit of all the women sojourners that came before us, I call upon all women to become mentors to young women and help cultivate our next generation of leaders.”

Women’s History Month is celebrated in the United States every year during the month of March.
