We spoke about the start of Women’s History Month. Now we are going to speak on how Women’s History Month became what it is today. Women's celebrations weren't widely spread until 1970’s. Later on in the decade California ordered for schools to try and comply with recently passed Title IX laws. As we already know a task force created Women’s History Week. March 1980 Jimmy Carter declared March 8th as the week of Women’s History week, But shortly after In 1987, Congress declared the entire month of March would be what is now, WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH.
Although Women’s History Month takes place all Month. Throughout the entire month there are many significant days that are made to be awarenesses, celebrated and or recognize during the month to acknowledge what women have gone through and are currently still going through. Some Days are:
International Women's Day still takes place on March 8.
On March 13, 1913, the Women’s Suffrage Parade in Washington, D.C., took place, where more than 8,000 women gathered to demand a constitutional amendment guaranteeing their right to vote.
On March 22, 1972, the Equal Rights Amendment was passed in the Senate.
Why Do We Celebrate Women's History Month?
Women History Month helps reflect the courage of women in past and present generations. The month Celebrates their efforts and bravery that afforded women freedom and opportunity today. This month also celebrates those who make a change in society or in your life such as: Mother’s, Mayors, Governor, President, Princesses, Daughter, Vice Presidents, Senators, Judges, Teacher, Doctors, Lawyers, Nurses, Grandmothers, Sister, Aunts, Godmothers, Boss, Job Director, CEO, Mentors, Best friends, Friends and many more.Without the fight and dedication from the past generations, who know what jobs and careers women could have join to make a change. This month also shows the hardship women had to go through to be free from the fight and dedication. The tears and emotions shed. The lives lost while fighting for women's rights.
In conclusion I am grateful that Womens all over the country are being Celebrated and recognized and attention is still being brought to what women faced and still face today
