Women's History Month 2019

Women's History Month 2019

In 1987, the National Women's History Project (now Alliance) successfully lobbied Congress to designate the month of March as Women's History Month. Celebrated annually, Women's History Month celebrates the role that women have played and continue to play in shaping history. This year's theme is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence." The honorees "embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results."

Here are some of 2019's National Women's History Month honorees:
