In honor of Women’s History Month, we are taking a look at 25 women who are currently doing their part to make history around the world. Considering this is a month dedicated to looking at the many contributions that women have made throughout history and even in contemporary society, it just makes sense that we would want to do a roundup of the people who are making an impact right now. These are the people we expect to be part of the history books.
From Meghan Markle and Kamala Harris to the Duchess of Cambridge and Greta Thunberg, these women are making big moves to make a big difference in the world (or even their small corners of the world). Recognizing their accomplishments right now is the least we can do for the movers and shakers who will change everything from the way we care for our mental health to the way we look at the health of the planet.
From social justice to climate change, there are so many reasons that these amazing ladies are worth talking about during Women’s History Month. And while we can argue all day about how a woman might make history, it is hard to deny that they truly are changing the way we look at the world.
So who are these history-making women and why are they the people who will go down in history?
25 women making history right now (2022)
1. Kamala Harris
No matter what your politics may be, there is no denying the fact that Kamala Harris is not only making history right now, but she has already done that. Not only is Harris the first-ever female vice president in U.S. history, but she is officially the highest-ranking female official in the entire country (ever!).
On top of making history as a woman, she also did it as an African American/Asian American woman. While she did have her name in the ring to be the Democratic nominee for president, she withdrew her name before being chosen by Joe Biden as his running mate.
It was a historic moment all on its own and one that continues to have a lasting impact on the country in a lot of ways. Every time Kamala Harris does something in her role as the vice president, she is making history and she does it will a level of grace and respect for the role that makes her iconic.
For Women’s History Month, it is hard to talk about women making history and not acknowledging the impact that Harris is having on the women of the United States. She is inspiring an entirely new generation of women and girls to see themselves in the White House.
