Women's History Month

 

The public celebration of women's history in U.S.A began in 1978 as

"Women's History Week" in Sonoma County, California. The week including

March 8, International Women's Day, was selected. In 1981, Sen. Orrin Hatch

(R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) co-sponsored a joint

Congressional resolution proclaiming a national Women's History Week. In

1987, Congress expanded the celebration to a month, and March was

declared Women's History Month.
