Women's History Month

 

Each year the United States designates March as National Women’s History Month to ensure that the history of American women will be recognized and celebrated in schools, workplaces, and communities throughout the country . The National Women’s History Project leads this cause and champions the accomplishments of women in history. Recognizing the achievements of women in all facets of life – science, community, government, literature, art, sports, medicine – inspires women to pursue new opportunities and traditionally male occupations, such as military service.
