Women are powerful: you face obstacles and experience achievements with everyday life, your health, and your family. March was Women’s History Month, a nationally celebrated month-long event remembering women’s triumphs in history and honoring today’s generations of women. The month of March recognizes the contributions and achievements women have made in the United States throughout our country’s history. As your Seven Oaks Women’s Center, we celebrate women year-long and dedicate ourselves to helping ensure women’s health for all women!
Women’s History Month is relatively new – under 40 years old. What started as Women’s History Week in 1982 rolled into the month-long event and by 1995, Women’s History Month became an annual proclamation.
Several of our nation’s most distinguished institutions displayed thoughtful exhibitions detailing various historical moments featuring women. The Library of Congress, for example, has a powerful exhibition showcasing Rosa Parks. The National Museum of American History’s featured Women’s Month exhibit details woman suffrage and commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
As your women’s health center, we are dedicated to keeping our wonderful women healthy and educated on various issues facing women’s health today. Throughout your lives, your body is subjected to various obstacles and issues exclusive to women; as you age and experience new life events, your body changes and so do risks. We are constantly learning of new modes of prevention and treatment, as well as maintaining a healthy body. This month – and all months – we at Seven Oaks celebrate women and women’s health.
