This Women’s History Month we honor women in public service and government. FEW want to take this time to mobilize, inspire, and honor women from all cultures and generations by remembering the trailblazers of the past and the future leader. We honor their legacies by carrying forward the valuable lessons learned from the powerful examples they set.
First, we honor one of our own, first president, Ms. Allie Latimer. Ms. Latimer along with a group of insightful women dared to transcend preconceived expectations and prove that women are capable of doing all that a man could do and more. They formed a more perfect union with strength and integrity in leadership. I invite you to enjoy a video of Allie speaking on how and why FEW was founded.

Second, we recognize the National Women’s History Project (NWHP) who has the forthright to acknowledge the many women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their public service and government leadership. FEW is honored to recognized this valuable organization for it work and dedication in recognizing women who are often overlooked and undervalued. We believe that collectively there is strength in numbers and we are proud of the women recognized for their dramatic influence on public policy and the building of viable institutions and organizations.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we remember the many advances made, discoveries revealed, barriers broken, and progress triumphed. And, as National President of FEW, I am committed to work towards our mission of “working to end sex and gender discrimination, to encourage diversity for inclusion and equity in the workplace, and for the advancement and professional growth of women in the federal service.”
In the Spirit of Excellence,
Michelle A. Crockett
