National Women's History Month

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. 

2015 ThemeThis year’s theme presents the opportunity to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively – into the essential fabric of our nation’s history.  

2015 is also the 35th anniversary of the Women’s History Movement and the National Women’s History Project.  During 2015, we recognize and celebrate the many ways that women’s history has become woven into the fabric of our national story.
