Women’s History Month 2023


March is Women’s History Month, highlighting the contributions of women to contemporary society. The commemoration is a California legacy, began in 1978 as “Women’s History day” in Sonoma County, California, and was championed by Gerda Lerner and the National Women’s History Alliance to be recognized as a national week (1980) and then month (1987) in the United States, spreading internationally after that.
