Women's History Month

Graphic with text "2024 Women's History Month: Celebrating Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion."

Why We Celebrate

Women’s History Month is a time to uplift the women-identifying individuals in our lives. Women have made great strides throughout history, and we recognize those contributions throughout the month of March.

The National Women’s History Alliance has designated the 2024 national theme for Women’s History Month as “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion”. The theme recognizes women throughout the country who understand that, for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions.

"During 2024, we recognize the example of women who are committed to embracing everyone and excluding no one in our common quest for freedom and opportunity. They know that people change with the help of families, teachers and friends, and that young people in particular need to learn the value of hearing from different voices with different points of view as they grow up”.
