Women’s History Month is celebrated each year in March. It is a celebration of women's contributions to history, culture and society. The United States has observed it annually throughout the month of March since 1987. Although women’s history is intertwined with the history shared with men, several factors - social, religious, economic, and biological - have worked to create a unique sphere of women's history.
The stories of women’s achievements are integral to the fabric our history. Until relatively recently, this sphere of women's history was overlooked and undervalued. Women’s achievements were often distorted, disdained, and denied. But, knowing women’s stories provides essential role models for everyone. And role models are genuinely needed to face the extraordinary changes and unrelenting challenges of the 21st century.
Learning about women’s tenacity, courage, and creativity throughout the centuries is a tremendous source of strength.
Datavo proudly celebrates all of the many contributions women have made to our society.
