In case you didn’t know, March is Women’s History Month.
Here’s a brief description of Women’s History Month, via InfoPlease:
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.
The month celebrates all of the individual, social, political and virtually all of success women have achieved in society. To highlight the month, Utica College is hosting several cool events for students:
Women’s History Month is a great time to step back and recognize all of the achievements women have gotten within society. There’s no better way to celebrate it than with your peers. Perhaps checking out the show by Huey Cal or taking a trip down to New York would be a good way to reflect on those accomplishments.
