ABOUT THE MONTH
March is recognized in the United States as Women’s History Month. Congress has granted the president permission and asked that they observe Women’s History Month since 1987. Though each year, the president must officially declare the observation. It's assumed protocol for the president to release a statement at the end of February to start the month.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
International Women’s Day has been celebrated in some form since 1909. In 1977, the United Nations passed a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day of Women’s Rights and International Peace. All member countries observe the day, which typically falls on March 8.
