Women's History Month

About Women's History Month

Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 as “Women’s History Week.” Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.                                                                                                   Source: https://womenshistorymonth.gov/about/
