March is International Women’s Month

International Women’s Month recognizes the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities.  Remarkable Women is a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

KTAL NBC 6 will celebrate ArkLaTex women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month, it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.  In order to celebrate these women properly, we need to highlight and recognize their accomplishments.  There are stories to be told and we will not only tell their stories, but we will also HONOR the remarkable women in these stories.
