Women’s History Month

women's history month

This Month began in 1978 as a weeklong celebration of women, and in 1987, the National Women’s History Project (NWHP) successfully petitioned Congress to expand the week to a full month.

Read a biography of a female historical figure that you would like to learn more about. Visit a history museum and learn more about things women have endured throughout history. Or talk to the female elders in your life to learn more about the women in your family history.
