The month of March has been declared as Women’s History Month in honor of the women who have done great things. Earlier this month when President Obama issued his proclamation, he acknowledge all of the great women who provided excellent service to shape our country. For many years, the history of women was not discussed, or presented to the general public. So to bring change to this situation, the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women started a “Women’s History Week” in 1978 to coincide with International Women’s Day, which took place on March 8th. Then in 1987, The National Women’s History Project petitioned to expand the celebration to the entire month. Since then the month of March has ben recognized as Women’s History Month.
