It’s Women’s History Month — a twelfth of the year dedicated to acknowledging the accomplishments and capacities of half of the population. This is a time for celebration and protest. Celebration of the beautiful, smart, and tenacious people who have made the world a better place. Protest against the systematic subjugation that many are forced to endure.
A sad reality persists such that most of the time, ladies who put in the work tend to be reduced to footnotes in our history books. These are people who have dedicated their lives for the betterment of society, but they deserve more.
Young STAR presents some of the country’s finest thinkers, workers, and fighters worth remembering. Special thanks to legendary komikera Dead Balagtas for helping formulate this list.
