Celebrating Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month, officially observed since March of 1987, is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. Taking one month out of the year to honor and recognize women’s accomplishments, throughout our history, helps to increase consciousness and spread awareness of the progress and advancement of women in our society. This is the perfect event to honor and celebrate the courageous, selfless, and dedicated women of our past, present, and future.
