For the month of March, The Pulse staff will feature short stories showcasing women that contributed to society through their achievements; from athletes, to writers, to artists, to public figures; those who are featured in these coming days have influenced lives and have served as role models to many. Since the 1980s, Women’s History Month was born out of a feminist push for equal access to jobs and education. Now, with women’s rights being a focal point in today’s society,  Women’s History Month is a push to recognize the achievements of women—and a movement to ensure women have equal access to the academic institutions where their history might be taught.
