Celebrating Women’s History Month
Linda Wise Miller, BHS Principal
The United States designated March as Women’s History Month as part of a larger global project that centers around International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8. Although it’s one month, we know that women have played a pivotal role in every facet of life and throughout every day of history. During the month of March, we celebrate women all over the world who have fought, often in obscurity, for justice and equality. As with all our heritage month celebrations, the focus on intersecting identities is an essential one. We highlight those who identify as women in all the many communities where they also identify: people of color, LGBTQ+, language and culture, disability, etc.
Our library has created an inviting display of books celebrating the achievements of women throughout the world. The Whatcom Museum also has an interesting display Moving Forward, Looking Back: Washington’s First Women in Government which includes Bellingham’s Frances Axtell. In our own Raider community, we recently announced Darcie Hill, a Red Raider alum and 2020 Athletic Hall of Fame inductee, as our new head girls’ basketball coach. We are so proud of our students and alumni and grateful that all individuals have opportunities to achieve their goals. It’s great to be a Red Raider!
