Happy March, Gusties! In the United States, March is Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to celebrate the often-overlooked contributions of women in history and highlight their vital role in American society. Another important date, International Women’s Day, was observed recently on March 8. This day is recognized globally and acknowledges the social, political, economic, and cultural achievements of women. Both International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month allow us to reflect on the progress made by women and to call for further change and action. Here at Gustavus, we have the privilege of being surrounded by countless fantastic female students, faculty, and administrators, who all impress us every day with their achievements. Women’s History Month gives us the opportunity to appreciate these women and give them the recognition that they deserve. It is important to take time out of our busy lives to learn about the lives of both the women here around us on campus and women as a whole around the world. Understanding the struggles that women face here on campus can help us to lift them up and help them to achieve even more than they already have. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the many remarkable Gustie alumnae in journalism, entertainment, business, politics and sports.
