Five Books to Read this Women's Month

Women's History Month, celebrated in March in many countries including the Philippines is dedicated to honoring and recognizing the contributions and achievements of women throughout history. The celebration emerged from the recognition that women's roles and contributions to society have often been overlooked, marginalized, or minimized. 

This month, we strive to recognize the achievements of women in various fields, including science, politics, literature, arts, sports, and more. It sheds light on the significant contributions women have made to society, often in the face of adversity and discrimination.

It is also a great opportunity to helps raise awareness about the ongoing struggle for gender equality and women's rights. It serves as a reminder of the progress that has been made, as well as the work that still needs to be done to achieve full equality and empowerment for women worldwide. Hoping inspire and empower women and girls by showcasing role models and historical figures who have broken barriers, challenged stereotypes, and paved the way for future generations.
