Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate women’s contributions and accomplishments. In the United States, Women’s History Month was first recognized in 1987. Since then, this time has been dedicated to reflecting and commemorating women throughout history. The theme for 2024 is "Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion".
