Now that February is done :’-( it’s time to get into March, Women’s History Month! This month reminds me of my time as a Gender & Women’s Studies (GWST) minor at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). I took a class about women’s representation in media and I really enjoyed it. The class was diverse, and the teacher made it fun.
In honor of Women’s History Month, I’m going to highlight different women and fictitious female characters in all my blogs. If you all have someone in mind, let me know by leaving a comment. That person just might show up on my list.
So, kicking off Women’s History Month, I challenge you to look up the term “womanism”. It was coined by Alice Walker, and I think the concept is interesting. To learn more about womanism and its origin, click here.
