Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month

The month of March is recognized in the U.S. as Women’s History Month. This month is especially attributed to all the frontline workers and caregivers that have sacrificed themselves and their families during this ongoing pandemic to support and care for their patients. Women of all cultures have contributed both hope and healing throughout history. In spite of society’s progress, women continue to face many obstacles because of their gender, in the workplace and at home. For instance, women on average earn less than men; are subjected to domestic violence; carry the majority of household and childcare responsibilities; face workplace stigmas and double standards; are under represented in leadership; and the ever pervasive rape culture.

This month, we honor all women who have paved the way and have provided opportunities for all women to achieve their dreams. We especially honor women such as our very own Abo Omachonu, MBA, BSN, RN, owner and president of Vintex Quality Care, who has provided employment for hundreds of women and men throughout her years as a business owner and has led this company to maintain an enviable reputation of providing quality home care services to the community since 1991.
