Note: In researching influential women for possible inclusion in this month’s March Madness bracket, it quickly became apparent how impossible a task it is to narrow down the field of incredible women across all time and their tremendous achievements to just 16 names to fit in a bracket. Our hope is that instead of feeling overwhelmed by how impossible the task, you will be moved and uplifted by the stories of the amazing women in our lives – both historical and modern day – and their accomplishments. Join us in celebrating them this month!
