Honoring Women’s History Month

Peyton Decker

As the calendar flips to the month of March, not only are we celebrating the spring blooms and the sunshine at Kosmik Brands, but we’re embracing the significance of Women’s History Month. This is a time when we get the opportunity to honor the immeasurable contributions women have made throughout history, in shaping cultures, societies, and industries.  

The Beginning of Equality

To truly appreciate Women's History Month, it's essential to understand its roots. Women's History Month originally started as International Women's Day, which emerged from the labor movement in the early 20th century. The idea of dedicating a whole month to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of women gained momentum in the 1970s. It wasn’t until 1987 when the United States officially recognized March as Women's History Month.  

Get Involved

As you reflect on the accomplishments of remarkable women who have set the stage for future generations, discover ways to get involved in shaping future generations yourself. Here’s five ways how:  

  1. Social Media: Use your voice on social media by creating content for Women’s History Month, hosting live Q&A sessions, starting a Women’s History challenge or contest, or you could even host a giveaway.
  1. Support Women-Owned Businesses:  This Women’s History Month, you could support women-owned dispensaries across your state or support national women-owned businesses like SheWeed, Canna Style, My Bud Vase, Pirate Girl Shop, and GRAV.  
  1. Educational Outreach: Educate yourself and others by working with your local or state historical societies and advocacy groups like YWCA, The Womens Foundation for the State of Arizona, Boston’s Women Fund, and ImpactOK.                                                                          
  1. Community Activism: Join in the act of community service by volunteering at a local charity or by sharing your story at a community event. You could make this a month to teach others about your own legacy as a woman.  
  1. Join a Program: There are several avenues to engage in a program or course focused on Women’s History Month. You might consider joining the CCWH peer mentorship program or becoming a member of the National Women’s History Museum.
