[ARCHIVED] Pembroke Pines SHEroes

Sheroes of pembroke pines_WEB (1)

As part of March’s Women’s History Month celebration, the City of Pembroke Pines invites Pembroke Pines residents to nominate a special woman in their life who personifies the vital role women play, not only in American history, but in our everyday lives.  Let us celebrate the great grandmother who left her country to find a better life for her children and future grandchildren, the single mom who worked two jobs to ensure her children could go to college, or the women who worked around the clock in a hospital during the pandemic to help those who were sick or alone.  The list goes on and the women are as different as the challenges put before them. Residents are encouraged to nominate a special woman in their life and explain in no more than 300 words why she is a SHEroe. Email the nomination to by March 31st at 9 pm. All entries will be read and the women nominated will be honored at an April Commission Meeting.  

Women’s History Month began as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed resolutions designating a week in March as Women’s History Week.  In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project (now known as the National Women’s History Alliance), Congress passed a resolution designating the entire month of March as Women’s History Month. It celebrates women’s accomplishments and contributions and also is a chance to reflect on the trailblazing women who lead the way for change. The 2022 Women’s History Month theme is about “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” calling special attention to the importance of caregivers who help to promote and sustain hope for the future now and throughout history in varying ways.
