Why Is Women's History Important?

It's really important to talk about and celebrate women's history because, for a long time, the amazing things women have done were often left out of the stories we tell about our past.

The National Women's History Museum

The National Women's History Museum helps to make sure that women's stories are included because when we understand the full history, including women's contributions, we get a better and more complete picture of our world.

Amelia Earhart: A Trailblazer in the Sky (1897-1937)

Amelia Earhart is a name that stands out in history! She was a woman who broke records in the sky and showed everyone that women could be incredible pilots too. Amelia was born on July 24, 1897, in Atchison, Kansas.

Met the Love of Her Life in Canada

She moved around a lot as a kid and eventually graduated from high school in Illinois. During World War I, she worked at a military hospital in Canada, where she met pilots and fell in love with the idea of flying.

After the war, she went to college for a bit but soon realized that flying was her true passion. In 1920, she took her first plane ride and was hooked! She started taking flying lessons from Neta Snook, a female aviator, and even bought her own plane, a Kinner Airster biplane. In 1922, she set a record by flying 14,000 feet high!

Life Stressors Surface

Life wasn't always easy for Amelia. Her family had money problems, and her parents got divorced. She moved to Massachusetts with her mom and sister and worked at a settlement house while still flying in air shows.

In 1928, she got a huge opportunity from publisher George Putnam to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. She didn't fly the plane herself that time, but it was a big deal, and she became famous!

Amelia and George Putnam got married in 1931, but she kept her own last name, which was pretty unusual back then. She thought of their marriage as a partnership of equals.

Amelia Breaks Records

Amelia wrote books, started a fashion business, and even worked as an aviation editor for Cosmopolitan magazine. She kept breaking records, like being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932.

Ninety-Nines Club of 1935

Amelia also helped start the Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. In 1935, Purdue University hired her to help with their aviation program and bought her a plane she called her "flying laboratory." In 1937, she set out to be the first woman to fly around the world.

Unfortunately, when she was close to finishing, her plane disappeared near the Howland Islands, and despite a huge search, she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were never found.

Amelia Earhart's life was full of adventure and achievement. She showed the world that women could be just as brave and skilled as men in the world of aviation.

Her story is an important part of women's history because she paved the way for other women to follow their dreams in the sky and beyond. She has paved the way for generations to come. There are so many female pilots than ever before.

re-inc: A Company with a Mission

re-inc is a company with a purpose. Founded by four soccer stars from the US Women's National Team - Tobin Heath, Meghan Klingenberg, Christen Press, and Megan Rapinoe - this brand is all about making a difference.

They're not just selling gender-fluid streetwear; they're on a mission to tackle social issues head-on. They want to create a community of change-makers who are all about making the world a better place.

What's the Big Idea?

So, what's the deal with businesses and social change? Can a company really make a difference? re-inc believes so. They're all about social entrepreneurship, which means they're using their business to create positive change. They're challenging the "status quo" - that's just a fancy way of saying they're shaking things up and questioning the way things are usually done.

A Closer Look at BIPOC

Now, let's talk about BIPOC. This term stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. It's a way to highlight the unique challenges faced by Black and Indigenous communities, especially when it comes to systemic racism. The term gained traction around May 2020, around the same time the Black Lives Matter movement was gaining momentum after the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

BIPOC isn't just a trendy acronym; it's a powerful reminder that not all people of color experience racism in the same way. Black and Indigenous people have a unique relationship with white supremacy in the U.S., and this term helps to acknowledge that.

Why Does BIPOC Matter?

Using the term BIPOC is about more than just being politically correct. It's about recognizing the specific struggles faced by Black and Indigenous communities. It's about acknowledging their unique histories and the systemic injustices they continue to face. And it's about creating a sense of unity and solidarity in the fight against racism.

So, when a company like re-inc proudly declares itself as a BIPOC/woman-owned brand, it's making a statement. It's said that diversity matters, that different perspectives are valuable, and that they're committed to making a difference.

Women Are Making a Difference

re-inc is more than just a clothing brand. It's a movement. It's a group of athletes-turned-entrepreneurs who are using their platform to challenge norms and inspire change. And by embracing terms like BIPOC, they're showing that they're not just about talk - they're about action.

So, next time you hear about re-inc or see the term BIPOC, remember that it's all part of a bigger story about progress, unity, and the power of making a difference.

What Is Social Entrepreneurship?

Social entrepreneurship is when people start a business that's not just about making money but also about making the world a better place. These businesses try to solve social problems or help the environment. The people who start these businesses are called social entrepreneurs.

They look for ways to make a positive impact in their community or even the whole world. Unlike charities, these are for-profit businesses, but they focus a lot on creating positive changes. Examples of Social Entrepreneurship.

5 Examples of Businesses with a Purpose


This company started in 2006 when Blake Mycoskie went to Argentina and saw that many children didn't have shoes. He decided to start a business where for every pair of shoes sold, a pair would be given to a child in need.

Today, TOMS has given over 95 million shoes to kids and has also helped provide safe drinking water, eye surgeries, and support for safe births.

2. Warby Parker:

Inspired by TOMS, Warby Parker has a "Buy a Pair, Give a Pair" program. They donate glasses to people who need them. They've given away over five million pairs! They also have a project called the "Pupils Project" where they work with local governments to give free eye exams and glasses to school kids in New York City and Baltimore.

3. FIGS:

This company sells medical apparel like scrubs and donates them to healthcare workers around the world. Since 2013, they've donated over 500,000 pairs of scrubs in 35 different countries.

4. Love Your Melon

It started as a nonprofit in 2012 but became a for-profit company in 2016. The founders, Zach Quinn and Brian Keller, wanted to help kids with cancer. They followed the one-for-one model, donating a beanie to a child with cancer for every beanie sold. Now, they donate 50% of their net profits to fight pediatric cancer.

5. Lush

This cosmetics retailer sells products made from vegetarian and vegan recipes. They support animal rights and make sure their products aren't tested on animals. Since 2007, their "Charity Pot" campaign donates 100% of the profits from certain products to organizations that focus on animal welfare, human rights, and environmental conservation.

Extra Information

Being a social entrepreneur is a great way to combine business skills with a passion for making a positive impact. These examples show that businesses can do well and do good at the same time.

If you're interested in starting a business with a purpose, think about what issues you care about and how you can help solve them through your business.

Hey there! Let's chat about some cool stuff in the world of flying and how more and more ladies are taking to the skies as pilots.

Blanche Scott

First off, let's go back in time a bit. Way back in 1910, a lady named Blanche Scott became the first woman to fly in America. She was known as the "Tomboy of the Air" and was part of the Curtiss Exhibition Team.

Bessie Coleman

Then there's Bessie Coleman in 1922, who was the first African-American woman and woman of Native American descent to get a pilot's license. She went all the way to France to learn how to fly because, back then, the U.S. wasn't so welcoming.

Amelia Erhart

Fast forward to 1932, and you've got Amelia Earhart, who's pretty famous for flying solo across the Atlantic Ocean. During World War II, when there weren't enough male pilots, women stepped up as part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) and showed they could fly just as well as the guys.

Amanda Lee

Now, let's talk about someone new on the scene - Amanda Lee. She's one of America's newest pilots and had a special moment flying with her grandpa on her last birthday. It was a full circle moment for her, as he took her up in her first small plane when she was young, and now she got to be the pilot.

Looking to the future, we've got organizations like Women in Aviation International (WAI) working to make sure more women get into flying. Lindsay Hernandez, a flight instructor, thinks that seeing more women in aviation will encourage others to join in. She advises women to work hard and not let doubts hold them back.

Rising Aviation High School

At Rising Aviation High School in Dallas, they're all about helping teens get into aviation, no matter their background. They even have programs to help students get their pilot's licenses while still in high school.

As for the present, the number of female pilots is on the rise, but there's still a long way to go. Women face challenges like the high cost of training and finding a balance between work and family life. But, if you love flying, it's all worth it in the end.

So, that's a quick look at women in aviation, from the early days to now and into the future. Pretty cool, right?

I just wish we celebrated all people's history together not as separatist dividing ourselves into subgroups. Not all histories have a month and it would be impossible to give them all a month, so I don't celebrate secular months only extraordinary people regardless of skin tone or gender. The sooner we shake labels and division the faster we stop being controlled by identity politics, hate, and exaggerated inequality. The faster we can heal and the faster we stop building our own glass ceilings.

Hi there, Andy.

To be honest, I've never celebrated Women's History Month. This story showed up at my laptop door, and I ran with it mainly because I ran out of ideas to blog about.

Personally, I miss a lot of holidays and celebrations because of my work schedule. So, I enjoy sharing these epic stories with the WA community.

However, this was my first deep dive into this topic. And I must admit, it made be very proud to be a productive contributor to society as a woman.

Historically, the women's space was mostly in the home, raising her family. Those days are long gone, unfortunately. Nowadays, roles have reversed. Did you notice how many stay-at-home dads there are today?

The Women's History Month is not about exalting women in a condescending way or anything like that. We still make much less than men, doing the same job. There's still a wage gap and still improvements to be made.

The bottom line is that women have come a long way and are taking their place in the world. They continue to make history.

Let's get with the program and give our women the credit they deserve.
Essentially, women are the reason we all are here. They gave birth to mankind. They suffered with those pesky labor pains.

Happy Woman's History Month!

She certainly was well respected. Not only by women but also by men. She is certainly a good role model for women. Brave!

Hi there, Geeta.

Happy Women's History Month!
