Women’s History Month, How will you celebrate?

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.

This year, we invite you to share your Women’s History Month celebrations with us on Instagram. Tag @PartnersFCU* so that we can share your story with our Members. To help get you inspired, take a look at last year’s Women’s History Month video, where we celebrated Partners cast members and their stories.
