March Is National Women's History Month
Designated by Presidential Proclamation and a law passed by Congress, March is set aside to honor and highlight women’s contributions in American history. Women's History Month was first observed as Women's Day in New York in 1909. President Jimmy Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8th 1980 as National Women’s History Week. In 1987 Congress passed Public Law 100-9, designating March as “Women’s History Month.”
The National Women’s History Alliance selects a yearly theme for Women's History Month. This year's Women’s History Month theme celebrates the women who fought for the Right To Vote in the United States. Since many of the women's suffrage centennial celebrations originally scheduled for 2020 were curtailed, the National Women's History Alliance is extended the 2020 annual theme into 2021 to "Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced."
Event To Observe Women's History Month
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have joined in commemorating and encouraging the study and celebration of the vital role women have played in American history and continue to play.
