After being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress, on March 7, 1982, passed legislation establishing “Women’s History Week” to commemorate and celebrate the vital role women have played in American history. Over the next five years, Congress would continue to pass joint legislation efforts to further extend Women’s History Week’s observation period. It wouldn’t be until March 1987 that Women’s History Month would become a national celebration and continue in the years to follow. In honor of the incredible women that created change and shaped history, we are excited to share and highlight public events that are amplifying community, conversation, and culture this March.
