Women’s History Month has officially begun

“…on the face of human history, Women’s History Month is not a beauty mark, but a scar. It is a sign of past hurt and continued healing. I hope for the day the scar vanishes into history and is visible no more.”

-Karen Swallow Prior, The Atlantic, 2013

Women’s History Month has officially begun for 2017, but do we, as a society, really want this month long commemoration?

Read Karen Swallow Prior’s “The End of Women’s History Month,” written in 2013 for The Atlantic. Prior is a professor of English at Liberty University and a research fellow with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
