March is Women’s History Month. It commemorates the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Its celebration corresponds with International Women’s Day on March 8.
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.
