#BIGPICTURE: Honoring women's history month, all month long

For today's big picture, we're heading over to the West Point Academy -- where we find our inspirational woman of the day: Simone Askew, the first African American woman to serve as the first captain of the West Point corps of cadets. She holds the highest student position at the academy, at a time where women make up just 20% of total cadets. Photographer: Mark Goldman, Icon Sportswire via The Associated Press.
