Too often do we see stolen ideas or celebrations that feel like too little, too late

There’s something about Women’s History Month that always makes me proud but also deeply pissed off. It’s a welcome reminder of the achievements of women in history and contemporary society and also the extent to which they have been overlooked. Worse, though, is the extent to which they still are overlooked in many areas of life; notably, creative fields and especially the ad business.
