Celebrating Women’s History Month


Every year since 1995, March has been designated Women’s History Month by presidential proclamation.

The earliest recorded Women’s History Week celebration was in 1978 and by 1980, the National Women's History Alliance successfully lobbied for national recognition which led to the first presidential proclamation of Women’s History Week by President Jimmy Carter in 1980. In 1988, congress passed a law designating March Women’s History Month

Each year, the National Women's History Alliance publishes a theme and for 2023, the theme is ‘Celebrating Women who Tell our Stories’ which honors women in every community who have devoted their lives to pursuing truth and reflecting society in all forms of media.
