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.

And to thank her for her courageous deeds the French allowed her to be captured by the English, who then burned her at the stake as a witch. Later the same church that burned her would make her a saint. Nothing spells gratitude better than human sacrifice.
