About Women's History Month

"By 1986, 14 states had already declared March as Women's History Month. This momentum and state-by-state action was used as the rational to lobby Congress to declare the entire month of March 1987 as National Women's History Month. In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women's History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women."

International Women's Day - Friday, 8 March 2019

International Women's Day is not country, group, or organization specific. Instead, it's a collective celebration of the cultural, economic, political, and social achievements of women.

The campaign theme is #BalanceForBetter

A balanced world is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
