March is Women’s History Month. The 2022 theme is “Women Providing Healing, promoting hope, paying tribute to the ongoing work of caregivers and frontline workers during the pandemic.

Women’s History Month celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. At Ranch View, we would like to highlight a few of the often-overlooked contributions of women in United States history. 

January 23, 1849: Elizabeth Blackwell becomes the first woman to graduate from medical school and become a doctor in the United States. Born in Bristol, England, she graduated from Geneva College in New York with the highest grades in her entire class.

Dec. 1, 1955: Rosa Parks, seamstress, refuses to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Ala. The move helps launch the civil rights movement.

June 18 1983: Flying on the Space Shuttle Challenger, Sally ride becomes the first American woman in space.

January 20, 2021: Kamala Harris is sworn in as the first woman and first woman of color vice president of the United States. "While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last," Harris said after getting elected in November.
