DA Voices: Women’s History Month

“DA Voices” is a recurring feature used to spotlight De Anza College’s diverse community voices. We ask the same question to different people and arrange their quotes so that readers can see varying points of view. This week, our reporter Sabrina Kulieva and our Art & Entertainment Editor Ingrid Lu asked, “What does Women’s History Month mean to you?”

Isabel Castrejon, 18, a psychology major, said that she spends time with her mother during this month.

“I think it’s the appreciation of all the women who have supported me in my life, in general. But specifically my mother, she’s worked really hard to get us to where we are in life now. She immigrated here, so I look up to her a lot for her resistance,” Castrejon said.

Andres Vega, 25, a computer science major, also gave his mother special acknowledgement.

“My mom, definitely,” Vega said. “Other than the obvious things like giving birth to me, she also helped raise me to the person I am currently, and I love her.”

Elizabeth Tsai, 17, a computer engineering major, said that Women’s History Month is something that helps people to remember what it’s like to be a women:

“Women’s History Month is a very special month where people can know more about women in the past,” Tsai said. “Women who make new innovations, represent different cultures and break rules that other people put on them, creating new rules for themselves.”

Bryce Aberg, 20, a business major, stops by the L Quad fountain on his way to class. (Ingrid Lu)

Bryce Aberg, 20, business major, named the women that he appreciates the most.

“I honestly didn’t know it was Women’s History Month, but now that you say it, I love my mom and I love my girlfriend,” Aberg said.
