Why Do We Celebrate Women's History Month?

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the many accomplishments and often overlooked contributions of women to American history, culture, and society. Starting out as a local weeklong celebration in Sonoma County, California, the week of March 8 was officially declared National Women’s History Week. Later, in 1986, following a petition from the National Women’s History Project, the event was expanded to the entire month of March.
