About Women's History Month

Recognition and celebration of Women's History in the United States began in 1981. That year, Congress requested and authorized the President to proclaim the week beginning on March 7, 1982 as Women's History Week. That week of celebration was extended to a full month in 1987, after a petition by the National Women's History Project.

National Women's History Month Theme - 2020

Valiant Women of the Vote

 

The National Women’s History Alliance announces "[their] 2020 theme celebrates the women who have fought for woman’s right to vote in the United States. In recognition of the centennial of the 19th Amendment, we will honor women from the original suffrage movement as well as 20th and 21st century women who have continued the struggle (fighting against poll taxes, literacy tests, voter roll purges, and other more contemporary forms of voter suppression) to ensure voting rights for all."
