National Women's History Month was established by presidential proclamation to draw attention to women in historical studies. One of the catalysts to the creation of this celebration is a women’s protest on March 8, 1857. The protest was against unbearable working conditions in a textile factory in New York City. This gathering led to organized protests across the country. These actions eventually led to the creation of International Women's Day on March 8, 1910, and eventually Women’s History Month in 1995. In celebration, we honor the contributions women have made throughout history.
