Women’s History Month in the United States can be traced back to a week-long celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and society. Organized by the school district of Sonoma, California in 1978, President Jimmy Carter was the first to issue a proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9, which designated March of that year as Women’s History Month. Over the next 5 years, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995 Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have each issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.
Each year, the National Women’s History Project selects a theme that highlights the achievements of women in specific fields, from medicine and the environment to art and politics. The theme of Women’s History Month 2012 is “Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment”
