From beauty queens to everyday queens.

In honor of Black History Month, we’re shining a spotlight on a few brave and inspiring women we can’t stop talking about. From beauty queens to everyday queens, their stories deserve to seen and shared. So go ahead and forward this S.H.E. Report on to the ladies (and men) in your life. We’ve no doubt these women will continue to inspire for generations to come. 

Beauty Without Borders

For the first time ever, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss Universe, and Miss America are all black women. It’s a beautiful, progressive, and historic moment that has been inspiring us all. And even though she didn’t win the crown, Miss Nigeria won us all over with her totally BFF-worthy support of Miss Jamaica.

Women of the Month

As we learned in December’s S.H.E. Report, women are often underrepresented in history. For black women, it’s no exception. And while their stories can hardly be contained in one month, we’re catching up on our reading this February. They include civil rights activists and the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize. Then there’s the founder of the #MeToo movement, the first African American principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre, and the first black ballerina to play the lead in The Nutcracker. 

 

The Edna Hospital Foundation

In a country with one of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the world, the rate at Edna Adan’s namesake hospital is 75% lower than the rest of Somaliland. As a nurse and midwife, she’s made it her life’s mission to treat mothers and their children and train the next generation of healthcare providers. And with over 90% of Somali women subject to female genital mutilation, she’s fighting to see that it’s abolished. Vagisil’s CEO, Keech Combe Shetty, sits on the Edna Hospital Foundation Org board of directors and never ceases to be inspired by the work she does.

The Original Self-Made Woman

In the 19th century, self-made millionaires were typically men. The first self-made female millionaire in this country, however, was an African American woman named Madame C.J. Walker. She made her fortune by developing cosmetics and hair care products for black women. In March, Walker’s story will be told in a Netflix series called Self Made.
