As we close out the month of March, Women’s History Month, we wanted to reflect on the contributions women have made throughout history to culture and society as a whole. In the previous year, women made strides and advanced to a level that previous generations had not experienced. We have seen the first female vice president, Kamala Harris; TIME magazine named Gitanjali Rao, a 15-year-old scientist and inventor its first-ever Kid of the Year; and Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their efforts in gene research, just to name a few.
Knoodle has made some advances of its own as well. Knoodle is in its 21st year of business—old enough to drink. Additionally, the agency has promoted Sandra Guadarrama-Baumunk to not only VP but also partner, continuing Knoodle’s legacy of being a 100% woman-owned agency.
Our founder and CEO, Rosaria Cain, recognizes the importance of the women in the newsrooms, on television, boardrooms and creative meetings that came before her. The women of Knoodle were asked what Women’s History Month means to them. Here is what they said:
“We are as powerful as we think we are. Thank God for the big-thinking women who have come before us and the ones who have yet to make their mark.”
—Rosaria Cain, Founder, CEO
“Women’s History Month is a month to celebrate how far we’ve come, and serve as a reminder of the importance of collaborating with one another rather than competing with each other.
It inspires me to live out my passions, purposefully, in front of my daughters; that is the greatest gift I can give them. They need to see themselves as a valuable piece of life’s puzzle and that what they have to offer the world will actually make it better.”
—Sandra Guadarrama-Baumunk, Partner, VP of Client Services
“Women’s History Month represents the universal sisterhood we share as women. This month is a time to not only recognize the amazing accomplishments we’ve had throughout history, but also to look forward at what is ahead.”
—Hannah Meyer, Project Manager
“It is important to thank and recognize the women of the past for fighting for the rights we have today. Women’s History Month inspires me to be bold, unapologetic and to never stop fighting for my dreams.”
—Alyssa Sotelo, Junior Art Director
“This month is a great reminder of how far we have come. It is a time to reflect and be thankful to those fierce queens who paved the way for us today.
Empowered women empower women, and that just affirms that there is no limit to what and where women can be in the future.”
—Zulma Jacquez, Account Coordinator & Media Buyer
“Women’s History Month is a chance for us to highlight the women who have made a difference in history. It is a reminder that we are powerful and strong. It inspires me to be who I want to be, and to never give up on my dreams.”
