In honor of WHM, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (R) of NJ, is sponsoring this clothing drive for women veterans. The whole month of March, professional women’s clothing is being collected for Suiting Warriors, an organization that helps veterans to transition into civilian life by providing them with “professional attire essential for competing in today’s job market.” The clothes donated will help women at job fairs and interviews.

Women’s History Self Guided TourWHMTour

Now through March 31st | National Constitution Center Philadelphia

Many native Philadelphians have not been to many museums and “tourist” spots since maybe their 1st grade class trip, but I will always be one to tell you – take advantage of what the city has to offer! Celebrating Women’s History Month by going to the National Constitution Center is a perfect way to celebrate women in history such as Susan B. Anythony, Sandra Day O’ Connor, and Betty Ford. What these women did for society still affects us today and that is pretty extraordinary.


We hope this list helps you to celebrate this wonderful month of women! Remember to recognize the amazing women you have in your life, and appreciate all those working to empower women everywhere. It only takes one woman to make difference – but together we can achieve anything we set our minds too! See you all at the Sincerely Chosen event on March 18th at Relish. Bring your loved ones and together we will celebrate Women’s History Month, have some fun – and inspire each other to Empathize, Empower and Evolve!
