Women's History Month

Women's History Month

Women’s History Month, observed March 1st through March 31st, celebrates and encourages studying the vital role women played in American history, culture, and society. Women’s History Month began in 1981 when Congress authorized the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, Congress authorized the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month.
