TriHealth Bridge

March 01, 2024

March is Women’s History Month, when we recognize, honor, and celebrate the achievements and history of women. The National Women’s History Alliance’s 2024 theme for Women’s History Month is “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” The theme recognizes women throughout the country who understand that, for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions.

From the TriHealth Center for Health Equity:
“Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate the contributions and achievements of women throughout history. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the ongoing pursuit of gender equity and to acknowledge the challenges that women still face in various aspects of life, including education, employment, and representation in leadership roles. Promoting equity involves ensuring that women have equal opportunities, rights, and access to resources, as well as addressing systemic barriers and biases that hinder their advancement. The Center for Health Equity is breaking down barriers women face and creating a space for women to thrive.  Women’s History Month is a great time to reflect on the impacts of many great women who have shaped so many lives.”

This Women’s History Month, we encourage everyone to honor important women in your life, deepen your understanding of women’s history, support women-owned content and businesses, and get involved in the community.
