Celebrate with the Library
We celebrate Women's History Month each March, to recognize the great contributions that women have made to our nation.
Women's History Month began in 1982, when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28, which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.”
