Honoring Women Paralegals and Lawyers for Women’s History Month and Beyond
Posted by PKSD Law Firm on March 8, 2022 in Firm News
Each year, the U.S. celebrates the women who have helped facilitate positive changes throughout its history.
Too often in history, the contributions of women have been overlooked or glossed over simply because of their gender.
Join the PKSD team in celebrating women throughout history, including the paralegals and lawyers at our own firm.
Celebrating Women at Home and Around the Globe
March is the month for focused reflection of the contributions and achievements of women, both today and throughout history.
Women’s History Month
The National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA), which formed over 30 years ago, was founded in Santa Rosa, California.
The NWHA seeks to educate and inspire others with the accomplishments of women. Each year, the NWHA coordinates multiple events – workshops, conferences and more – to further their efforts and recognize today’s women leaders.
This year’s theme is “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” – a reflection and a tribute to caregivers and frontline workers during the pandemic. Many women, not just doctors, nurses and caregivers, but also clerks, mothers, lawyers and others, have inspired hope and strived to help and ease the suffering of others.
International Women’s Day
Celebrated every year on March 8, International Women’s Day focuses on the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women around the world. This year’s theme is “Imagine a Gender Equal World.”
