It is still Women’s History Month, and I can’t help but think about all of the women who have made an imprint on our lives. “If it wasn’t for the women” is the expression sociologist Cheryl Townsend Gilkes uses when she describes the importance of women in the Black Church. She’s so right—and not just about the presence and work of women in the church to keep it going and thriving, but in all of life. If it wasn’t for the women—their voices, their courage, their strength, their wisdom, their ingenuity, their expertise, their love, their care and concern—where would we be?
On March 2, President Price announced plans for a "limited, in-person commencement ceremony" for the Class of 2021, forbidding guests from attending due to public health concerns.

For some, their son or daughter will be the first in their family to graduate from college. For others, the occasion marks an important coming-of-age event observed in their family for generations. For all, the inability to witness graduation will be devastating.

I have always enjoyed films about women doing and taking what is rightfully theirs. Be it work, a title or respect, it is empowering to see female characters unafraid to take a stand. Many of these films, however, are dependent on the expectation that women need to put other women down: “Mean Girls,” for example, villianizes typically feminine traits, and even Sharpay of “High School Musical” felt like she couldn’t succeed in her theatre career without sabotaging Gabriella. Yet, in Colin Higgins’ “9 to 5,” the women in the film stand by and with each other, not out of convenience or pleasantries, but necessity.
