Honoring Women’s History Month & International Women’s Day

May 2024

Each March, Women’s History Month (WHM) is celebrated in the US. The month commemorates the contributions and achievements of women in the US. The annual celebration emerged from a congressional resolution that dedicated the week beginning March 7, 1982, as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987, the National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to extend the week and dedicate the entire month of March to women’s history. March has been proclaimed by the President as Women’s History Month each year since.

March also encompasses International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The 2024 International Women’s Day themes include “Inspire Inclusion” and “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress”.

This guide includes ways to honor WHM & IWD by leveraging resources, linking initiatives to business impact, leading with intersectionality, and building one’s knowledge base on women’s history and topics concerning women.
