Women’s History Month of March

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.

The 2022 Women’s History theme, “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

As an example, we can look at past heroes in the fields of science, medicine, and caregiving like Ethel Percy Andrus, Florence Nightingale, and Gertrude Elion, an American biochemist who won a Nobel prize in 1988 for contributing to the development of several drugs used to treat leukemia and AIDS. Or we can acknowledge more recent leaders like Dr. Kizzmekia S. Corbett whose great accomplishments include being one of the lead scientists behind the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. Not to mention, the many powerful women behind the scenes
