Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on women who impacted society. Other media outlets will honor famous female humanitarians, politicians, doctors, teachers, inventors, entertainers, and businesswomen. As Christians, we see this as a time to celebrate the women who came before us, defying tradition and sometimes risking their lives to impact their families, communities, and the world for Christ’s gospel and glory.
In the Charisma Magazine blog, “12 Trail-Blazing Christian Women You Should Celebrate,” author J. Lee Grady writes, “When I think about the empowered women of my generation I’m reminded that they stand on the shoulders of brave women pioneers who didn’t have today’s advantages.”
These women preached the gospel, freed slaves, protected children, and helped the poor. Their work for Christ is certainly worth celebrating this month.
