Adafruit womens history 22 blog

Happy Women’s History Month! All through March we will be celebrating women who have made an impact. From celebrities of their time to some overlooked heroes, join in as we post Monday through Friday.

You can also follow along on social media with #WHM22 #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenInSTEM

Every year there is a theme to help ground and guide the celebrations. For 2022 the theme is Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.
