One day left before Women’s History Month is over. Did you take an opportunity to honor a woman who exudes qualities that resonate with you this year? If you haven’t, it’s never too late!
When Congress first acknowledged Women’s History in commemoration it started out as just a week, the week beginning March 7th 1982. By March 1987 Congress received petitions by the National Women’s History Project to consider acknowledgement for the entire month of March and subsequently the entire month of March recurringly year afer year via Presidential proclamation between 1988 and 1994.
Presidential proclamations are integral to the continued acknowledgement of the achievements of Women in various fields throughout history. Some notable mentions include the following moments in time:
Sojourner Truth: 1851 “Ain’t I A Woman”
Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton: 1869 Nation Woman Suffrage Association
