March is Women’s History Month


The role of women in history was first commemorated in March 1978 as Women’s History Week in Sonoma County, California. Congress issued a joint resolution proclaiming a national Women’s History Week in 1981, and expanded the celebration to an entire month in 1987. Since then, Congress has designated every March as Women’s History Month.
