Women's History Month Resources

March is Women’s History Month. Help your students learn about and celebrate women’s contributions to history, culture and society with our cross-curricular lesson plans, worksheets, projects, quizzes, and activities below.

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.

The Women's History Month theme 2022, selected by the National Women’s History Alliance, is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.” The chosen theme is intended as “both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.”
