Better Because of Her

Every day, women get up and do the work to take care of their families, put food on the table, advocate for reproductive freedom and pay equity, break barriers in the workplace, show up at the ballot box, and so much more.

Due to the work of women, we are all better off. It’s because of women that Roe v. Wade passed, giving all people the reproductive freedom to make fundamental decisions about whether and when to have children. It was because of women that VAWA passed, ensuring survivors have access to critical resources and support they need during some of the worst times of their lives. It’s because of women leaders, that critical legislation and social equity movements have been born to fight for justice and make the world a better place for all of us. Things are much better. They’re better because of her.

That’s why during Women’s History Month we plan to celebrate the women who made us better. We will be underscoring the tremendous accomplishments of well-known women, women changing their communities all around the globe, women active in civic engagement, young women who are making waves, and some of our beloved YWCA leaders, essential workers, and volunteers.

Follow us on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram, where we’ll be highlighting the substantial progress we’ve made because of the extraordinary women in our lives.

Join in the conversation using #BecauseOfHer, #EmpoweredWomen, and #WomensHerstoryMonth to spotlight the work of women in your community.
