Happy March – aka. National Women’s History month in the U.S. and the month that we celebrate International Women’s Day, on March 8th. Even though every month is Women’s month here at Girl Tribe, it is nice that the rest of the world acknowledges the importance of women in our society during the month of March. You can read more about this holiday in this month’s Culture section.
We have a lot of great things to report about in this month’s issue. In Entertainment we offer a recap of this year’s amazing female-centric Grammy Awards with more female nominees, performers and winners than ever! We even have a first time female Grammy winner, Emily Lazar as our Five Questions interviewee which is super cool! We also have a recap of the Oscar Awards which also made history with the most female winners ever! In addition to highlighting all the amazing female winners and performers (we still are not over Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance!) we roundup some of our favorite looks from the red carpet. We have a report on Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks who will be the latest women inductees in the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on March 29th at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY.
There are more women than ever serving in our government these days and for our politics section we decided to highlight the power women of D.C. in light of Women’s History Month. In our charity section, we report on Planned Parenthood’s Day of Action on March 12th.
In this month’s business section we report on interesting research which shows that women get ahead in business by networking as well as creating a solid inner circle of fellow professional women. The purpose of Girl Tribe is to help our generation create those connections and encourage the idea of getting stronger together – glad to see that there is hard evidence supporting our mission! Additionally, we introduce Virginie Viard – the new head of Chanel after Karl Lagerfeld’s death.
In Sports we report on Lindsey Vonn’s retirement and 13 year-old Alysa Liu who made Figure Skating History. Serena Williams makes a number of appearances in this issue – not in our sports section, but in this month’s “It List”…from inspiring commercials to performances on TV, that woman is a superhero on and off the court!
There are a lot of great movies, TV shows, books, articles and female focused art exhibits, including Ashley Longshore and Diane von Furstenberg’s joint art curation which features powerful women in honor of Women’s History month (artwork pictured above) in this issue’s Recommended section. Many schools have spring break this month, so you should have plenty of time to take advantage of these offerings!
