"Nevertheless She Persisted: 

Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women"

The above quote has become the theme for the 2018 Women's History Month.  Women continue to persist, to persevere, to fight for equality and change whether through the #MeToo movement or Times Up or through the myriad small and large efforts by thoughtful women across the globe.
