This Women’s History Month, #ChooseToChallenge with Ruby.

Welcome to Women’s History Month!

The month of March is dedicated to honoring the accomplishments of women. That includes women making change, leading businesses, supporting and caring for their families, and shaping the future right now.

After all, we don’t just look back on history. We create history—by living through it. As we mark a year since the first coronavirus cases and lockdown orders in the United States, our roles in history are undeniable.

Women made history in 2020.

Think about the healthcare workers who saved countless lives over the last 12 months.

Or the scientists who helped create COVID-19 vaccines in record time.

Or the business owners who served their communities and sustained their employees during a pandemic.

Or the parents who woke up every day to feed, teach, and nurture their children—while working from home.

Women did all of the above and more. Resilient, capable, innovative women. Women in business. Women in STEM. Women who raise their children without the support of a spouse or partner. Black women. Trans women. Indigenous women.

Women like Kizzmekia Corbett, PhD, one of the National Institutes of Health scientists who developed Moderna’s COVID vaccine.

Women like Sydni Craig-Hart, CEO of Smart Simple Marketing, an agency that connects organizations with women-owned, minority-owned, and small businesses.

Women like many of the small business owners Ruby serves.

Women, perhaps, just like you.

Join Ruby in honoring women this March.

All month, Ruby will be honoring the women making history in our communities. We’re committed to elevating women through education, visibility, and action—and to facilitating opportunities to learn, listen, and participate.

Stay tuned for candid conversations, stories from Rubys and our friends, and ways you can make a difference.


Curious about what can you look forward to this month? A major theme we’ll be exploring this month is Choose to Challenge, inspired by this year’s International Women’s Day theme.

Throughout history, women have chosen to challenge the status quo in every facet of their lives, and they’ve done so with determination, resilience, and grace. With all that women have fought to achieve, there is still work to be done. That’s why we all need to continue to challenge—ourselves, each other, the status quo—every day.
