Women have made great contributions, both past and present, facing many challenges along life’s journey.

Despite the struggles nearly every woman has endured, still they move toward making their mark.

Kathryn Johnson, director of Logistics, Engineering and Force Protection at the Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, will be the guest speaker.

Staff Sgt. Rakarah Bellini, Women’s History Observance Month Subcommittee lead, said Women’s History Month is an opportunity for society to recognize women’s greatness.

“The significant contribution of women to our countries history is all too often overlooked and deserves recognition,” she said. “For the military and Robins’ community, it’s particularly important because the military remains mostly male-dominated.

“Consequently, it’s essential to remind ourselves that throughout history women have not only contributed to the greatness of our country, but also our military. From the first woman to receive the medal of honor in 1917 (Mary Edwards Walker in the Civil War) to the first female Air Force Four-star General in 2012 (Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger), women always have and will continue contributing to the greatness of our nation; which includes doing our part in ensuring the United States Air Force remains ready to fly, fight, and win,” Bellini said.
