Women’s History Month, which just finished its annual March run, has only been around since the 1980s. It was International Women’s Day first, and then Women’s History Week, until Congress decided that, like Beyonce belts out in her song “Run the World (Girls),” girls do in fact run the world, therefore, there should probably be a month dedicated to the mothers of mankind.

Women: Women will be represented in the Senate with a total of twenty female senators, the most ever, representing almost forty percent of the country’s population.

Hawaii elected the first Asian-American women to the Senate with Mazie Hirono, who is also the first Buddhist, as well as the first person of Japanese decent elected to the Senate. Hawaii also elected another woman, Tulsi Gabbard, who will be the first Hindu in Congress.

This right off the bat doesn’t make sense, since businesses will hire based on their current needs for work, not on how much money they have.  According to PolitiFact, corporations are sitting on nearly $2 trillion, and while some of that is being used for general upkeep, the rest of it does not seem to be invested in as much as we’d like.
