|Women's History Month Theme
Hello and welcome to the Focused on Story Blog!
Last week, I highlighted International Women's Day, May 8, "a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day is also a call to action for accelerating women's equality."--National Women's History Project website
International Women's Day is an event through the National Women’s History Project (NWHP).
According to their website, this organization "was founded in 1980 in Santa Rosa,
California,We convinced Congress and the White House of the need for our nation to celebrate and recognize women’s role in history on an annual basis. As a result of our efforts, the week of March 8th (International Women’s Day) was officially designated as National Women’s History Week. In 1987, we led the successful campaign to have the entire month of March declared National Women’s History Month."
