2015 Theme: Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives
March is Women's History Month. Accounts of the lives of individual women are important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do. The stories of women’s lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience.

March is Women’s History Month, and the 2015 theme “Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives” presents the opportunity to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively – into the essential fabric of our nation’s history. To find more information on these pioneering women please look at our excellent eBooks, Celebrating Women in American History, and Dictionary of Women Worldwide: 25,000 Women Through the Ages, both of which are part of the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL).
Make It Happen is the 2015 theme for our internationalwomensday.com global hub, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women.

Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
