The month of March is Women’s History Month, dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the central role of women in American history. In honor of this event, NAWRB is recognizing the phenomenal achievements by women in history.

Women’s History Month began as Women’s History Week in 1981 and was observed as such until 1986. Beginning in 1987, resulting from petitions from the National Women’s History Project, Congress extended the week to a month. Every year, Congress passes a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the president issues a proclamation.

The theme for 2019 is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence,” which honors “women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society.”
