March is Women’s History Month in the US, the UK and Australia. It was created to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. I have long been a feminist and have greatly appreciated and have benefited from women that have fought for women’s rights. Growing up in the US in a middle-class family, I rarely wanted for anything, and education (including university) was a given. However, working and living in Guatemala has given me a whole new perspective on what it is to be a woman and just how lucky I have been in life.
