Did you know that March is Women’s History Month?
This national celebration began in 1981 when Congress passed Public Law 97-29 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim that the week beginning March 7, 1982 would be “Women’s History Week”. Over the next five years Congress continued to pass resolutions allowing a week in March to be known as “Women’s History Week”. Then, in March of 1987, Congress passed Public Law 100-9 which designated the month of March as “Women’s History Month”. In the years following Congress passed additional resolution’s requesting that the month of March each year would be “Women’s History Month”. Presidents such as Clinton, Bush and Obama have continued to issue resolutions designating this month as “Women’s History Month”.
