It's womens history month and we're here to celebrate one of the things that inspire us... WOMEN! Especially because the person writing this is a woman, but we, without a doubt, are here to appreciate femmes and women all around! Lets get into a little bit of history! Er... HERstory and our body piercing jewelry designs inspired by woman innovation!

Eventually, Women's history month became a yearly declared month, dedicated to progression and celebration of woman-kind! In the 1990's, Congress authorized Women's History Month as designated in march EVERY year! This became a national month of celebration and learning. Now, Women make up 27% of Congress! What a huge leap but this isn't finished yet!

Breaking Chains, Building Empires: Women's Triumphs Over Centuries of Oppression

When you look back on the past of womens history, women really missed out on so many natural rights that men naturally received. And no, they couldn't get facial piercings for fun like we can now a day. It wasn't until 1965, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law. This meant that discriminatory tactics like literacy tests became outlawed so all women were able to vote. Think about it, women weren't allowed to go to school or learn how to read for quite some time. Women, oppressed for decades, finally deserve the time to celebrate a bit of freedom!

Women weren't allowed to get credit cards until 1974. If you think about it, that wasn't long ago! Until Congress passed the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974, women couldn't get credit cards in their own name. They had to bring a man to cosign for them whether it be their husband, brother, or father. Talk about OUTDATED! This powerful act from Congress paved the way for opening opportunities for women that men already had. For example, the ability to attend state-funded schools, protection from pregnancy, protection from discrimination at work and so much more!
