March 1st marks the beginning of Women's History Month - an official recognition of women's contributions to civilization, culture, and humanity throughout human history. And I commend lawmakers for creating it (which began back in 1987) - women are chronically under-represented in history textbooks, and their achievements are often ignored or minimized by historians and in popular culture. Having March be officially designated as Women's History Month puts a focus on women's overshadowed role throughout history, and forces many to recognize that much of history, technology, and culture was driven by women.
But its existence begs the question: if we have Women's History Month, why would we not also have Men's History Month? After all - isn't EQUALITY the driving force of the progressive movement? We've pondered this question, and will now explain - through logic and reason - why our society NEEDS to celebrate Men's History Month too, if we ever hope to achieve equality. I know this will be controversial to many, but this must be said.
