The public celebration of women’s history in this country began in 1978 as “Women’s History Week” in Sonoma County, California. The week including March 8, International Women’s Day, was selected. In 1981, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) co-sponsored a joint Congressional resolution proclaiming a national Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the celebration to a month, and March was declared Women’s History Month.
We had the pleasure of connecting with some wonderful women already and can’t wait to share their stories!
Be on the lookout for the March post on our GOODINKMAG Facebook and Instagram pages which will highlight the good works of women all month long.
