March is Women’s history month. Surprised? So was I when I heard about it. Like Black history month, this month is about a segment of the population that has been continually ignored in history books. Because of this, women are given one month a year to fully appreciate and explore women’s history. And to that I say… BULLSHIT! Women are more than half of the population. We are mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, and friends, yet we are pushed into a single month. Mary Wollstonecraft, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and the many other women who stood up and declared themselves citizens of their own country, a human with thoughts and feelings and a voice are celebrated, however this is not what women want. There has been much debate over Black history month; it has been argued that it is ultimately racist. Why? Because Black history should not be segregated to one month, black history is as important as white, and Latino, and Asian, and all the other races and creeds that make up the world. Women are part of all these races, yet they are still treated as second class citizens, they are being pushed into one month, and then forgotten for the rest of the year. These brave women, who pushed for women to have a voice in their own lives, should be remembered every month. Women’s history is part of all history and is just as important. I ask those who created this month to please think about what they actually want for women’s history: one month or the whole year? I appreciate what they are trying to do, but it is not good enough. Everyone should be aware of women’s contributions to history. It is going to take more than a month of half assed feminism to do so.
