Welcome to Women's History Month!

March is Women's History Month! I'm looking forward to talking to Kai and Ives about all the kick-ass things women are capable of and helping them to see just how special it is to be a girl. In the meantime, here's a little women's history fact to get you started:

Joan of Arc was the only person ever recorded to have commanded the entire army of a nation at the age of seventeen and led French forces to victories over the English at the age of 19.
