A whole month is dedicated to the history we have made as women and how far we have come. Unfortunately the idea of celebrating women still has many differing opinions. I wanted to see what my friends thought. Here's 7 of my friends, of ALL genders, opinions on the month long celebration:
Let's get straight to the point

"Is that a thing?"
Is it even celebrated?

"No, I've never seen anybody celebrate it."
It is something that should be celebrated

"Yes, women's history in general is very important. It has been a very long journey to get women's rights and we should celebrate that."
Breaking those social norms

"It's important because women broke out of the expected behaviors to make major improvements, not only for women themselves but for society as a whole."
Pointless, but for a *good* reason

"It is sort of pointless. Why shrink an entire history into one month?"
Either way, our journey as women deserves to be acknowledged

"It is important. Women's history needs recognition because not too long ago we had no rights along with strict social rules."
As you can see, *most* of my friends think it's important, maybe because most of my friends are also women, but I agree, there is not a lot of awareness on the month. Take a day out of this month to educate yourself on women and their accomplishments.
