Celebrate Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is observed from March 1 – 31 each year as a way to celebrate the often overlooked contributions women have made to American history, society and culture. Learn more about women’s history by visiting The Library of Congress’ official website for Women’s History Month or checking out the virtual exhibits from the National Women’s History Museum. The theme for this year’s observance is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope”.

“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.” -National Women’s History Alliance
