Women in history have paved the paths for women in today’s world. Every March, we honor women who worked hard and fought their way to make a difference during National Women’s History Month. We would like to also thank the women of Wilde East Towne Honda for their outstanding dedication and achievements they have provided to our company.
According to womenshistorymonth.gov, the origins of National Women’s History Month start in 1981 when Congress passed a law which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” womenshistorymonth.gov goes on to state that throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, Congress passed a law which designated the entire month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, each President has issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month” and naming the theme for that year.
This year’s theme is “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives.” This year’s theme presents the opportunity to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively – into the essential fabric of our nation’s history. This year also marks the 35th anniversary of the Women’s History Movement and the National Women’s History Project. Each year, the National Women’s History Project decides the theme of Women’s History Month. Dedicated to women, the organization also holds numerous conferences and meetings annually on the topic of women’s history. Check out their website, www.nwhp.org for more information.
