Women’s Month celebrates the accomplishments of women for decades

Mishal Nizar
Women demonstrate empowerment throughout history, and celebrate that during Women’s Month.

Women have made significant strides in the past century, yet it was not until 1981 when March became a national celebration for women. It began as Women’s History Week and it was not until 1995 that it became an official month long celebration. This month is meant to be a reflection of the accomplishments and achievements women have made in the past and will continue to make moving forwards. Recently, organizations like the National Women’s History Project have been working to focus their programs and work. People should use the next month as a way to understand more about the history of America and to motivate women to continue to make contributions moving forwards.
