Women of Influence

March is Women's History Month. I'm sure you knew that already, but you know how I like to keep the Lipgloss Lounge educational as well as entertaining. Obviously.

Working in higher education, I usually know about big awareness campaigns and there are generally campus activities to support these campaigns. This year, my sorority women are setting up a table by the dining hall to have students write a note to a woman in their life that has impacted them in some way. They did this at Syracuse (where I went to grad school) and I just loved this activity. So I suggested we do it here. I think it's a great way to help students make it personal.
We purchased these note cards for the notes.

So we'll start this activity tomorrow and I've been thinking about all the women that have impacted my life. Wow. I'm really lucky to know so many strong and wonderful women. I know I take it for granted but I think it's important that we take moment this month and throughout the year to let our own women of influence know what a difference they make.

Who do you want to write your note to? Take a minute and send her a note sometime this month. She'll really appreciate it.

Happy Women's History Month to you all!
