Venice High Reflects On Women’s History Month

Julissa Alvarado, Reporter

This March, it’s Women’s History Month. This month is a really important time to celebrate and acknowledge women, whose voices are often left out and go unheard. We should acknowledge the extraordinary work women are doing in the world today.

I have had many teachers who are women and I think they are the best. They teach as good as men, and they are capable of anything men can do. I, as a woman, think it’s important to have teachers as role models and understand us as women. I feel like female teachers better understand what teen girls are going through.

One of my favorite teachers at Venice has been Mrs. Taichiki. I really enjoy her because she is a really kind and caring woman who is really understanding of what women go through. I also appreciate how she acknowledges the work of women through the curriculum.

“We read women authors as often as we can, and we discuss the unfair treatment of women through the ages,” she told me.  

Women have struggled a lot with their rights and many still to this day. Now we have the right to vote and do many things that we were once not able to do. We have seen a change, and things have improved a lot over the years.

We still have a long way to go to equality, but we are getting there slowly. Overall we have come a long way, and that’s something to be proud of.
