Writing Women Back into History
What began in 1981 as Women’s History Week through a Joint Congressional Resolution co-sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. Barbara Mikulski later evolved into Women’s History Month in 1987. Since then every year during March programs and activities take place across the country celebrating the significant contributions of women in history. This year the theme is Writing Women Back into History. Visit the Library of Congress Women’s History Month site here learn lots more.
