Women’s History Week was initially created by the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County Commission (California) on the Status of Women in 1978. It was chosen during the week of March 8th so that it would coincide with International Women’s Day. In 1981, Women’s History Week received national recognition by a joint Congressional resolution. In 1987, Congress extended into a month-long celebration. Today, Women’s History Month is an international celebration.
This year’s theme for the commemorative month is “Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment”. The Vine Event Planning will be commemorating Women’s History Month by thinking outside the box for our monthly online event on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TheVineEventPlanning. We understand that school or college is not the only place education occurs. We will highlight women who educate and empower women from various aspects of education. So, from the hair stylist to the workout instructor and from the poet to the professor; we will cover it all!
This month, we encourage you to celebrate women by researching the accomplishments of women in your area of interests and/or by simply holding a causal conversation about a woman you admire with a fellow employee or friend.
