Call it the year of we-don’t-have-to-live-like-this. In 2021, a growing number of passionate Baton Rouge women decided it was time to refuse to accept the status quo—and that they were not too small to make a major impact on our community and our world. Their actions are beautifying our streets, helping to prevent future flooding, providing nourishment to those in need, and literally saving lives.
