    Wow! What a great idea! Women’s History Month should be celebrated and well attended! So when is your scheduled Men’s History Month? I want to go to both and celebrate everyone! Say, have you thought about having a Black History Month, White History Month, or Asian History Month?? That should give you plenty to do since your goal is to be 100% non-racist, gender neutral, and politically correct! Keep up the good work you liberal Angels you!
