Keeping track of National month of this and that can be a daunting task for some of us; but come on, its Women’s History Month and is first day of Spring month how could we not celebrate the mother of all things; Mother Nature and Mother of Humanity! March events celebrating and recognizing women began back in 1911 when the first International Women’s Day took it’s roots. There were of course many petitions and series of events leading up to 1980, the year when President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8, as National Women’s History Week. By now is was evident that women were not going to settle for a week’s recognition out of the entire year so fast forward to1987, when Congress passed a bill along with many other sub-petitions thereof authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month.
Now I’m going to deliberately interconnect the fact that March is the month when we welcome the most beautiful seasons of all; Spring, and connect that to us women and women’s month. Now that’s quite a month ladies!
