How Did Women's History Month Begin?
Since the dawn of time, women have been working hard for a fair shake. Leaders, pioneers, homemakers, trailblazers -- women were essential to the birth of this nation and are essential to lead us into its future. The first recording was reported as a "Women's Day" organized by the Socialist Party of America in New York City all the way back in February 28, 1909. The United Nations began to recognize International Women's Day on March 8, 1975.
The first celebrations took place in Sonoma County, California, in 1978. President Jimmy Carter issued a national proclamation declaring the week of March 8 National Women's History Week. Then in 1987, the National Women's History Project, successfully petitioned Congress to designate the month of March 1987 as Women's History Month. Each March carry's a theme and the theme for 2021 is "Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced."
