Women’s History Month is a time to celebrate the history of women and their contributions to society. It is an opportunity to recognize the struggles, achievements, and contributions of women in America and worldwide.
The National Women’s History Project (NWHP) was founded in 1979 by Alice Paul and other feminist leaders. The NWHP created the idea of Women’s History Week, which has been observed every year since 1987 on the second week of March. In 1994, Congress passed legislation designating March as Women’s History Month.
This month is dedicated to the celebration of the contributions of women in history. It also serves as a reminder that there is still a lot more work to be done.

Thirdly, it is easy for employees who can’t attend the event in-person to still participate in the event by joining online via video chat. Finally, the organization can easily record and share the event with others afterward so that they can learn from what was discussed.
Support women-owned businesses

You can amplify their business on your social media, share what they do on your nonprofit’s YouTube channel or order from them. It is important to support women-owned businesses because they are the backbone of the economy. Women make up a majority of small business owners and contribute over $8 trillion to the U.S. economy each year. Furthermore, women-owned businesses are more likely than male-owned businesses to hire female employees, which not only helps women but also strengthens families and communities.
