MANA Honors Contributions of Women During Women's History Month

Women's History Alliance (MANA) celebrates Women's History Month, a month dedicated to recognizing the vast achievements made by women over the course of American history and in contemporary society. 

This year's theme for Women's History Month is "Providing Healing, Promoting Hope," according to the National Women's History Alliance, one of the driving forces behind the annual event in March.  

The theme is a tribute to the ongoing work of caregivers and frontline workers during the ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history. 

Events are being held all over the country to celebrate the contributions of women over the years. 

The national event is not just limited to women in the United States. March 8 is the annual International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The theme for this year's international event is "#BreakTheBias."

Wikipedia says it hosts 1.7 million biographies and not even 20 percent of those are about women. Do you know women who have made achievements that should be publicly recognized? Wikipedia has details on how to choose a woman you would like to create a new article about as well as other event recommendations for National Women's History Month.

MANA Encourages Women Writers

Since its beginnings in 2002 as a self-publishing company, MANA has encouraged women in their efforts to publish their works and make a difference in the lives of other people. 

“I celebrate all women who have made their impressions on history,” says Dr. Fairy Hayes-Scott, MANA’s co-founder, and owner of MANA’s parent company, Robbie Dean Press. “I encourage other women who have taken a step to make an indelible mark in history to share their story with MANA so that the company may share it with the many visitors of MANA’s site.”

Read an interview the Dr. Hayes-Scott on with LadyBossBlogger and on this blog, "the MANA Sunriser."

Be sure to explore MANA's blog, "The MANA Sunriser" to find poetry prose, and narratives written by women from the 18th century to the 21st century. Dr. Hayes-Scott, a college professor for more than 40 years, also has interpretative readings of works from women, including Frances Ellen Walker Harper, Zhai Yongming, Jessyca Mathews, and Eleisha Powell.
