As part of our feature on National Women's History Month, we caught up with several Winston-Salem role models including, from left to right, Rachel Hoeing, Katie Moosbrugger, Nikita Wallace, Phyllis Caldwell-George, Kathy Cissna, and Jessica Aveyard. 

Since 1995, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation declaring March as National Women’s History Month.

It has a new meaning this year now that Vice President Kamala Harris will be serving alongside President Joe Biden, the first time in history there’s been such a high-ranking female in office.

Vice President Harris’ election is a major accomplishment considering the many hurdles women face compared to men: the gender pay gap, sexual harassment, and the uneven amount of employment opportunities are just a few to get the list started.

Each year, the National Women’s History Alliance announces a theme and after the tumultuous election season drama from last year, it’s fitting: “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.”

At a more local level but with just as much inspiration as Vice President Harris, female leaders, business owners, brand ambassadors, and more are taking a stand and inspiring each other.

For National Women’s History Month, we provided a platform for their stories.
