Celebrate Women's History Month!
Traditionally, Americans celebrate Women's History Month every March. We look back at the ordinary and extraordinary courage of women past and present who have fought and continue to advocate for equality and certain rights: to get an education, to vote in public elections, to make personal reproductive decisions, to legally enter into same-sex marriage, to receive equal pay for equal work, and numerous other inequities.
We watched history in the making on January 21, 2017, when an estimated 3.2 million women and other supporters in cities across the United States marched or otherwise gathered to show a united front given the rising endangerment to women's rights in our country. Tens of thousands more around the world joined their U.S. counterparts in an expression of solidarity and purpose.
