The (S)Heroes of 2018

By: The Memo Staff

'Tis the season for a list, and we're using the last day of the year to honor those women of color that made us proud in 2018.

We are in awe of all the contributions that women of color made this year and every year. This week, we salute five “sheroes” who inspired us. Their contributions are vast, and we know we could not do all of their accomplishments justice, so we are sharing just a few facts about each!

Thank you, ladies, for continuing to push us forward!

Happy Monday, ladies!

Wednesday was International Women's Day.

Many of you supported female-owned businesses, wore red in solidarity, or acknowledged the phenomenal women in your lives. However you spent your day, we salute you.

All of March is Women's History Month. Let's keep the momentum going, ladies.

Here are four songs by fearless women that have us feeling like the queens we are:

Feeling Good As Hell, Lizzo
Queen, Janelle Monae
Grown Woman, Beyonce
I'm Every Woman, Whitney Houston
Respect, Aretha Franklin

Here's to a great week!
