5 study sets for Women's History Month

Quizlet HQ & Teachers ·

2021 marks the 35th year that Women’s History Month has been celebrated on a national level. The month-long recognition has roots in Sonoma, California. In 1978, the local school district observed a week-long celebration of women’s history. Other communities around the country followed suit, until President Jimmy Carter proclaimed a week in March to be Women’s History Week in 1980. Spurred on by the National Women’s History Project, Congress created the month-long celebration we know today in 1987.
