Background Information on Women's History Month

Women’s History Month is celebrated and declared as presidential proclamation on the week of March 8, 1980. It was issued by President Jimmy on February 1980.  March is the designated month for Women’s History Month as a way to recognize, celebrate, and honor women’s achievements and contributions towards American culture, history, and society.  The National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA), formerly The National Women’s History Project, is founded by a coalition of women in Santa Rosa, California in 1980 to recognize women’s achievements in history.  Every year, the National Women’s History Alliance creates and selects a new theme for honoring women's history.  This year 2022, NWHA selected this theme focusing on: “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope”.  This theme pays tribute to women who are working in the frontline as healthcare professionals and caregivers during this current pandemic, and to women who transform and reshape the world through healing and hope, today and in history.
