One of the best ways to participate in a celebration is to understand the roots and the history of it. “Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 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.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.” (Women’s History Month)
If you are lucky then you have been exposed to strong, independent, and powerful women in your own life. Whether they are your mother, aunt, grandmother, sister, godmother, or mentor, these are women who should honored and celebrated this month. Don’t you agree?
There is nothing better than women who support other women. When your friend is looking for a job, how can you help her? In reality, it feels so incredibly rewarding to help another woman elevate in her career. How are you supporting the women in your network this month?
Similar to Black History Month, Women’s History Month doesn’t have to end in March. If you want to celebrate and honor women all year long, you should do it! There is no time limit attached to celebrating the power and joy women offer in this world.
