Women’s History Month – Really?

As time goes on, and inequality persists for women and people of color, I’m finding these designated days and months that “honor” the downtrodden to be not only ineffective but insulting. Why should the local library feature African-American authors in February and female authors in March? Why not honor all peoples’ contributions equally?

Below is a re-post of an article I wrote in 2015 for Ms. Magazine.com on this issue. Sadly, it’s still relevant.
