Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month allows us to not only celebrate the advancements, achievements and contributions of women to our society and the arts, it gives us an opportunity to recognize and thank the women who lead and support our organization. It is also a time to reflect on the work that still needs to be done to ensure equal treatment of ALL women.

The National Women’s History Alliance selects and publishes the yearly theme for Women’s History Month.  The 2024 Women’s History theme is “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. Women from every background have long realized that an uneven playing field will never bring equality or justice. Many feel the critical need to speak up and work harder for fairness in our institutions and social interactions.

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.
