Women's History Month
Women's History Month is an annual observance held in March in the United States, Canada, and some other countries. It is dedicated to celebrating and recognizing the achievements, contributions, and history of women throughout history and in contemporary society. Women's History Month is an opportunity to highlight the roles women have played and continue to play in various fields, such as politics, science, literature, arts, education, sports, and social activism.
The origins of Women's History Month can be traced back to International Women's Day, which has been celebrated globally on March 8th since the early 20th century. In the United States, efforts to expand this celebration and recognize women's historical contributions led to the establishment of Women's History Week in 1980. This week-long observance was later expanded to a full month in 1987 when Congress passed a resolution designating March as Women's History Month. Learn more Women's History Month.
