Since 1987, Women’s History Month has been celebrated nationwide in the United States. This month-long observance in March is dedicated to recognizing the extraordinary cultural, political, and socioeconomic contributions and accomplishments of women in the U.S. and all around the world. From groundbreaking inventors and influential executives to tenacious athletes and resilient activists, countless women have inspired others to strive for a brighter future for themselves, their loved ones, and the upcoming generation of leaders and change-makers.
The origin of this week can be traced back to a school district in Sonoma, California, where in 1978, a week-long tribute to women’s contributions to culture, history, and society was initiated. Numerous students participated in an essay contest and presentation, and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa to commemorate the event. Following this, other school districts and organizations across the country began to organize their own academic events and festivals. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation designating the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The following year, Congress established a national week-long celebration. After six years of organizing, it was decided to extend the celebration to the entire month of March.

The National Women’s History Alliance has chosen “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories” as the designated theme for Women’s History Month for 2023. This theme acknowledges the contributions of women from both the past and present who have been involved in various forms of media and storytelling, including print, radio, television, theater, film, blogs, podcasts, news, and social media.
This month, remember to pay tribute to the women of the past who worked tirelessly for gender equality, equity, and representation, as well as today’s women who have taken up the mantle to continue breaking barriers and shatter the glass ceiling. Nevertheless, let us not only commemorate the women who have made significant contributions, but also the women in our daily lives— our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, mentors, teachers, and friends— who have set an example of how to uplift one another, not despite gender, but in recognition of the power it holds.
