Women’s History Month had its origins as Women’s History Week starting in March of 1982. Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as Women’s History Week. In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed designated the month of March 1987 as Women’s History Month. Since then March has been recognized as Women's History Month. These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
