March is Women's History Month

The month of March is Women’s History Month!

It’s not only a time to celebrate the women in your life, but also reflect on the ways that women have positively impacted our country and continue to today.

It dates back to 1981, when Congress first requested that the president make the week of March 7th 'Women’s History Week.'

This continued until 1987, when Congress declared the entire month of March ‘Women’s History Month’.

There are lots of ways to celebrate this month, from getting out in the community to simply passing along a message.

You can attend local women’s history events or even museums in your area to show your support.

You can also shop at businesses that are owned or were founded by women and support non-profits for women.

Another easy way to celebrate is to simply honor and recognize the special women in your life, whether it’s your mom, sister, wife, aunt or even a teacher or co-worker.
