Women's History Month


Women's History Month became a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as "Women's History Week." In 1987 the National Women's History Project urged congress to pass a law which designated the month of March as women's History Month. Since 1995, sitting presidents have issued a series of annual procolmations designating the month of March for Women's History Month. (Library of Congress, 2014).
