MARCH IS WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
I know that pain from the inside out. The kind that never goes away. You just learn to live with it. And I know there are women all over this world who have gone beyond the pain to bring meaning to a life lost...the life of a child.
In my case, my writing and speaking help to ease that pain of my son's loss. For my guest today, Angela Ware, she bakes. Dozens and dozens of homemade cookies. Her family run business, Dough Jangles, was started in tribute to the loss of her 9 year old twin son, Eric, who died of a brain tumor five years ago. Aaron is Eric's surviving twin, and he is the centerpoint of launching the business. (www.doughjangles.com)
Aaron and his Mom were featured on Oprah,have met the celebrated chef Paula Dean, and have been featured on CBS News and the Washington Post. Now we talk with Angela about her husband, their three sons and transforming grief into a successful business.
It's Women's History Month and we're featuring women like Angela Ware who defy the odds to make a difference in this world.
Pass the cookies please!!!
About Women’s History Month
Before the 1970’s, the topic of women’s history was largely missing from general public consciousness. To address this situation, the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women initiated a “Women’s History Week” celebration in 1978 and chose the week of March 8 to coincide with International Women’s Day.
The celebration was met with positive response, and schools began to host their own Women’s History Week programs. The next year, leaders from the California group shared their project at a Women’s History Institute at Sarah Lawrence College. Other participants not only became determined to begin their own local Women’s History Week projects but also agreed to support an effort to have Congress declare a national Women’s History Week.
In 1981, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) cosponsored the first Joint Congressional Resolution proclaiming a “Women’s History Week.”
In 1987, the National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to expand the celebration to the entire month of March. Since then, the National Women’s History Month Resolution has been approved every year with bipartisan support in both the House and Senate.

About This Year's Theme Our History is Our Strength
“Our shared history unites families, communities, and nations. Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors - social, religious, economic, and biological - have worked to create a unique sphere of women's history.”
