Do You Think Women Need Their Own History Month?

by Mister Promo | March 11, 2015

Is there really such a month that celebrates Women's History or is it just one day?? This is a logical question. Afam Point of View Magazine believes it to be the month of March. While Rock-It believes it to be one day in March. However, does there really need to be a whole month dedicated to women? I say yes. Even though, this is the first I am hearing of such a celebration. But that is what change means. I can adapt and I can surely participate.


First up, I would like to mention Janelle Monae.
What a Fresh of Breath Air. She definitely Breaths my Take away. Huh? What?

Anyway, where was I? Ah yes. Janelle Monae.

Before she was The Janelle Monae
Born in Kansas in 1985, singer Janelle MonĂ¡e began performing as a child and got her big break in 2005 when she was invited by Big Boi to perform on several OutKast tracks. She was later signed by famous producer Sean "Puffy" Combs to his Bad Boy Records label. In 2010 her debut full-length album, The ArchAndroid, rose to No. 17 on the Billboard U.S. album chart and received a Grammy nomination. She followed up with the sophomore album The Electric Lady (2013), which featured singers Prince and Erykah Badu.

Today she stands for so much more than when she first came onto the scene. She is one of the top faces for CoverGirl. She uplifts and empowers young girls all over the world with her demeanor, style and drive to be successful. Also, she is the epitome of greatness. She is a true Electric Lady.


Next up, I would like to mention Ellen Degeneres.

Born on January 26, 1958, in Metairie, Louisiana, Ellen DeGeneres became big as a stand-up comedian before starring on her own sitcom, Ellen. In 1997, she came out as gay and has become a staunch advocate of LGBT rights. She has been the host of her own award-winning talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, since 2003, and married girlfriend Portia de Rossi in 2004.

This lady is phenomenal. Her show is amazing. I wasn't always a fan. I mean I have heard of her, of course, but I was not an avid watcher of her show. Until recently. She has guest appearances from many celebs, of course. But the many guests that drew my attention to her show were the independent, internet sensation celebs. I think it is a great segment. I am also a fan of her celebrity scare segment. I think it's hilarious to watch celebs be in fear for their life. That probably reads as bad. But, come on, I know you like it and laugh too.

Ellen. She is also a face for CoverGirl just as Janelle Monae. She is a wonderful person to look up to for various reasons that are too many to list. However, I will say that her boldness to stand out above her peers through style and pizzazz can be very motivating to the youth in all walks of life.

It has been much too long for women to be viewed as less than, secondary to man, not good enough, etc. That must change. And it surely is changing. Little by little but definitely surely. 

I mean, was it not a woman who designed and stitched the first American flag? Which had thirteen stars symbolizing the thirteen colonies of the U.S. Was it not a woman who created the first hair products for black women? Was it not a woman who turned a weekly paycheck as a talk show host into a billion dollar company? Was it not a woman who did much more than just give birth to man? Stop treating women less than. Women (hardworking women) mean and stand for much more than less.
