What is Women's History Month?

"National Women's History Month is an American observance held during the month of March to recognize and celebrate women's contributions to culture, history, and society. It grew from International Women's Day, a global celebration of women's achievements celebrated each year on March 8, and the Women's History Week celebration, which was first held in Sonoma County, California, in 1978. In 1987, US Congress officially established the month of March as Women's National History Month." - Salem Press Encyclopedia
