"Women Who Achieve" shares the first-hand experience of PNC executives with career-bound college women.

Until relatively recently, stories of women's achievements in history were frequently undervalued or unreported. In addition to distorting history, this gap deprives young women of the essential role models they need to embrace the changes and challenges of the 21st century. National Women's History Month, established by Congress in 1987, was created to correct this problem.

Each year, the National Women's History Project chooses a theme for events throughout March. With this year's theme, "Our History Is Our Strength," the Women's History Project is encouraging communities and institutions to honor local women whose lives and work have inspired others.

Inspiring career-minded college women is the goal of PNC's Women's History Month commemoration. "Women Who Achieve," a series of short YouTube videos,(www.youtube.com/pnc) shares the insights, experience and advice of PNC's female professionals on topics relevant to future women leaders, such as preparing to land your first job, advancing your career, and balancing your personal and professional pursuits.

On the national stage, the PBS series Independent Lens features portraits of two extraordinary women.

  • Me Facing Life (March 1), the true story of a 16-year-old girl who was arrested for murdering a man who intended her harm, is a reminder of the challenges that many women still face.
  • Pushing the Elephant (March 29) shares the triumphant story of Rose Mapendo, who escaped the ethnic violence of the Democratic Republic of Congo to become a vital voice in the mending of her divided country.

It's not too late to honor and inspire the women in your world. Throughout 2011, Women's History Project performers and presenters are available to bring women's stories to life for your organization.
