Women’s History 4 Kids

Women's History Resources

The celebration of women’s history began as “Women’s History Week” in 1978 in Sonoma County, California. Nearly a decade later, in 1987, congress declared that women’s history be celebrated for an entire month, and March officially became Women’s History Month.
