Happy Women’s History Month
Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the contributions of women in history, is celebrated in March in the Unites States, United Kingdom, and Australia. It coincides with International Women’s Day on March 8.
In 1977 the National Women’s Conference in Houston, TX brought together women from all walks of life demanding basic rights like equal pay, affordable childcare, and judgement-free healthcare options (aka access to safe abortions). Women certainly have come a long way since 1977, but women’s rights are still imperfect.
During the 1977 conference Maya Angelou read a poem to the crowd, she said, “We promise to accept nothing less than justice for every woman.” We owe it to the women who came before us and all our young girls to finish the fight.
Nintendo Releases New Switch Console
Nintendo released its newest game console on March 3, 2017. The major selling point is the adaptability of the system: play inside on a TV, or unplug and take it on the go as you would a tablet. Unlike other gaming companies, Nintendo is known for making changes in how games are played, not necessarily the graphics, which is why so many adults look with nostalgia to Nintendo products.

A Tale As Old As Time
The long anticipated remake of the classic fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” premiered this past week. The story features a strong female lead, a refreshing departure from many classic fairy tales that center on a damsel in distress, or worse, a female lead whose only purpose is to marry. Even if you’re familiar with the story, this version uses flawless computer graphics to interplay the human actors with “alive” inanimate objects. If that’s not enough, Emma Watson does an excellent job personifying the role of Belle.
