Each year, in March, Women’s History Month is celebrated. The purpose of Women’s History Month is to increase consciousness and knowledge of women’s history: to take one month of the year to remember the contributions of notable and ordinary women, in hopes that the day will soon come when it’s impossible to teach or learn history without remembering these contributions.

Volunteer at a local women’s shelter, organization, or a women’s health clinic.
Share your expertise and experience by mentoring a young woman.
Watch a movie or documentary on a influential, powerful woman.
Read a book by a woman who inspires you.
