National Women’s History Month

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Facts for Features  “National Women’s History Month dates back to March 8, 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions. International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, but it wasn’t until 1981 that Congress established National Women’s History Week to be commemorated the second week of March. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month.”  Click the link to find more interesting facts about the 157.2 million women in the United States.
