Before Women’s history month is over, we could not be a womanhood blog if we did not acknowledge our month in some way. I decided to do so by highlighting these 1o women who paved the way for us somehow. Many of these women faced huge obstacles but persevered to complete the tasks they were destined to. They realized their natural talents, allowed them to grow, and blessed many people as a result. For that, we thank you.
