Little girls need role models to look up to. Too often the only people we see in our history books are white men. There is no shortage of brilliant female revolutionaries. There is no shortage of female scientists, poets, astronauts, politicians etc. Why then, does America like to pretend that there is? Men don't need a month because every month is their month. This can also be said for people calling for a "white history month." Most of the history taught in our schools is taught about predominantly white people. The white man who triumphs over this and that. We need to see change. We need to see women being honored in the same way that men are.
