Women's History Month
March wasn’t always celebrated as Women’s History Month. According to the National Women’s History Museum, it was only celebrated for a week in the month of March until 1987, when the United States Congress passed Public Law 100-9, designating March as Women’s History Month. It is a month-long event to reflect on contributions of women in the United States history, such as Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks just to name a few. These are some ideas on how to celebrate Women’s History Month:
- Read a book by a female author to celebrate literary works by women.
- Listen to a podcast hosted by women: Stuff Mom Never Told You or The History Chicks.
- Send a “thank you” letter or note to women in your life who have inspired you or have impacted your life. Who doesn’t enjoy getting a letter from a friend?
- Love TED Talks? Check out the top 10 TED talks by Women.
