Women's History Month serves to honor and remember the history and contributions of women in society to bring about social change, and speak out against injustice. Women's History Month originally began as a petition to celebrate Women's History Week on March 7, 1982. After another petition secured the celebratory week for the next five years, Women's History Week became Women's History Month in 1987 after Congress passed resolution Pub. L. 100-9 designating the month of March for the celebration month. Today we look back to honor the women who have helped shape and secure women's rights, and we also look ahead and celebrate the women working today to continue this important work for future generations.
