Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been celebrated in the United States during the month of March since 1987. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.
In observance of the month, the Tufts Employer Relations team wanted to share some resources on ways to incorporate the month into office environments and provide additional information on gender equality in the workplace, as well as other resources.
