The month of March has been designated as Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.”
This year’s theme is Women’s Education- Women’s Empowerment. Although women currently outnumber men in colleges and universities, this is only a very recent phenomenon. The gender gap between men and women is still prevalent within the business sector.
I was for fortunate to be featured in a Women’s History Month series on DangerousLee.biz. This month, she is showcasing women from different fields and asking them about what it means to be a woman and what is it that empowers them. Please visit her site and check out the feature that she did on me by clicking here.
