Women's History Month

To celebrate this year’s Women’s History Month, observed throughout the month of March, Team AgLearn is providing information and resources to help all users learn more about this annual commemoration.


Women’s History Month has its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 External Link which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week of March 7, 1982 as Women’s History Week. Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as Women’s History Week. In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 External Link which designated the month of March 1987 as Women’s History Month. Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of US-American history in a variety of fields.
