It Is National Women's History Month

In 1981, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution establishing National Women's History Week. The week was chosen to coincide with International Women's Day - which is March 8. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women's History Month in March, and the U.S. president has issued a proclamation.
The theme of this year's National Women's History Month is "Generations of Women Moving History Forward." For event and programs please please click on the following link: http://www.nps.gov/ncro/PublicAffairs/Womens_History_Month.html
