Women's history month - a celebration of the contributions of girls and women to the development of society, and to our shared history. I honor all of the women who came before me, and will come after me, for all of their important achievements and victories for the human race. Here's to the women in our families, among our friends, and in the workplace; and here's to the men that love them and support them too.
About Women's History Month:
Women's History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women's Day on March 8, and during October in Canada, corresponding with the celebration of Persons Day on October 18.
The commemoration 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.
