MAKING HISTORY: Nancy Pelosi Becomes First Female Speaker of the House

In honor of Women's History Month, we are celebrating with 31 days of women's history! Every day in March, we will highlight an historic moment, as told through the personal stories of our MAKERS.

Today we honor the woman who changed the possibilities for women in politics when she became the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. A mother of five children before she even entered politics, Pelosi's unforeseen path to Capitol Hill and staggering achievements in a male-dominated world make her an inspiration to women pursuing big dreams.

Pelosi's advice to young women:

"Be recognized for what you do."
