Women's History Month
Women's leadership
Past - Present - Future
"Certainly there are very real differences
between us of race, age, and sex. But it is
not those differences between us that are
separating us. It is rather our refusal to
recognize those differences, and to
examine the distortions which result
from our misnaming them and their
effects upon human behavior and
expectation” - Audre Lorde
"Humans are allergic to change.
They love to say, 'We've always
done it this way.' I try to fight
that. That's why I have a clock on
my wall that runs
counter-clockwise."
- Grace Hopper

First Ladies:
Michelle Obama & Dr. Jill Biden
by Kassidy Lopez
"Now I think it's one of the most useless
questions an adult can ask a child-What do you
want to be when you grow up? As if growing up
is finite. As if at some point you become
something and that's the end."
-Michelle Obama, "Becoming"
"Education doesn't just make us smarter. It
makes us whole." - Dr. Jill Biden
