Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories


March 1-31 is Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the courage, contributions, achievements, and milestones of women over the course of American History.  This year’s theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.”

Before it was Women’s History Month, the recognition was known as Women’s History Week.  In 1978, Sonoma County, California held the first known Women’s History Week to align with Women’s History Day. At that time women’s history was little known in educational curriculum. In 1982, President Jimmy Carter proclaimed the week-long celebration beginning on March 7.  In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the entire month as Women’s History Month.

In his proclamation, President Carter stated that both men and women helped shape the United States since the country was founded.  President Carter said, “Too often, the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed,” he wrote. “But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength, and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”

Pioneer women who shaped America’s history include Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Jane Addams, Ida Wells-Barnett, Helen Keller, Presidential First Ladies, and so many more.  To this day, countless female political and civic leaders, athletes, and activists continue to make significant changes for equality and fairness in our country.
