Let's Celebrate Great Women! The Pink Event® Spotlights National Women's History Month

Did you know today kicks off the National Women's History Month? We at The Pink Event® 2014 (March 9, 2014 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Columbia, Md. from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) sure do. Event creator Tamika Josephs-Smith started the event in March to tie in this important recognition. 

After all, our awesome women's expo celebrates women-owned businesses and promotes breast cancer awareness in a fun environment that offers shoppingmini-inspirational sessions, live DJ, and so much more. 

So we decided to highlight some amazing US women. 

Sacagawea, of the Shoshone tribe, is credited as being a great interpreter and asset to Meriwether Lewis and his friend William Clark. She worked with the expeditionary group that took on the monumental challenge of reaching the Pacific Ocean in the unexplored America. 

Molly Pitcher was a nickname for women who carried water to troops during the American Revolutionary War. One notable example was Mary Ludwig Hays McCauley, who during the Battle of Monmouth, worked with husband to fire a cannon in the battlefield. 

Madam CJ Walker (born Sarah Breedlove) was the orphaned daughter of former slaves who transformed herself from an uneducated farm laborer into one of the first African-American millionaires. She is one of the 20th century's most successful women entrepreneurs, and considered a pioneer of the modern black hair-care and cosmetics industry.

Let us know in comments who your inspirational woman is and don't forget to go online now and order your tickets to the Pink Event.
