Which month is Women’s History Month in the U.S.?

Answer: Women’s History Month grew into a nationally recognized celebration, beginning in the United States in 1987. It grew from a California small-town school event into a national recognition of the contributions women made and continue to make to society, culture and history. The local school district in Sonoma, California, began the tradition with a week-long celebration in 1978. In 1980, it caught the attention of President Jimmy Carter, who issued a presidential proclamation designating National Women’s History week for the week of March 8. Six years later, Congress expanded the event to a month-long celebration in March. Source: History.com
