So. many women to honor, so little time!

Is it just us, or does Black History Month seem so short? We feel like we should petition to extend it to the next month because 28 or 29 days is not doing it for us! (You in?) Thank goodness we have Women’s History Month, which gives us an opportunity to continue celebrating women from all backgrounds!

As we do every year during Black History Month, we picked four women who we felt deserved recognition for enriching our lives with their courage, fearlessness, artistry, and words.

It came as no surprise to us how much the four women we featured for our Black History Month “Woman of the Week” series deeply resonated with you. Combined, you liked and shared our posts 325 and 71 times, respectively. That’s a whole lot of people who are now familiar with these phenomenal black women. Thank you for helping us amplify their talent, accomplishments, and messages.

Also, we’re grateful for your beautiful comments and for telling us how much these women meant to you. Here is some of what you had to say:

Rosa Parks:

“Brave lady! – Randi

Nina Simone:

“My Shero” – Hazel

Taraji P. Henson:

“Have loved you since Petey Green. Your incredible, dynamic, vivacious indomitable spirit! God Bless! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!” – Kathleen

“Love her!” – Viveca

In case you missed it, here’s our roundup of 4 black women who inspired us most during Black History Month :

Hope these women inspire you as much as they did us.

Happy Women’s History Month gapmusers! Which women are empowering you this month? Please share so they can inspire us too.
