Women's History Month

Women's History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to the United States history. Women’s History Month began as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, California in 1987. The organizers selected the week of March 8th to correspond with International Women’s Day. The movement spread across the country as other communities initiated their own Women’s History Week celebrations. Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, each president has issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”
