Celebrate Women!

Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed a resolution that authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, March was proclaimed “Women’s History Month”, and Congress continues to pass resolutions annually. Women’s History Month celebrates the contributions and achievements women have made to the United States in fields such as science, technology, arts and social justice.
