Since March is Women’s History Month, I thought it was a great way to recognize the amazing women in my life.

Women’s History Month originated as a national celebration in 1981, but back then it was just as a week-long celebration. In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, the month of March was designated as Women’s History March. Soon after, additional resolutions were passed requesting and authorizing the president to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month.
