Women’s History Month
Women’s History Month is the annual celebration of the contributions women have made in the United States and recognizes the specific achievements women have made during American history. In 1987, Congress passed a resolution proclaiming March as Women’s History Month. Since then, presidents have issues annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. Since then, other countries began recognizing the month as well.
