The first women’s history month occurred in California March 8, 1978. This week was commissioned by the  Education Task Force of Sonoma County in order to address the problem of women missing largely from history books. March 8 was chosen to coincide with International Women’s Day.
     The week was such a success that other schools began to have their own Women’s History weeks  the following year. At the same time, leaders from the California group shared their program at a Women’s History Institute at Sarah Lawrence College. Other participants joined and became dedicated to support an effort to have Congress declare Women’s History Week as a reoccurring national event.
     The first Joint Congressional Resolution proclaiming a “Women’s History Week” was cosponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Rep. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) in 1981.
     The National Women’s History project petitioned Congress to expand the week to the whole month of March in 1987. Since then, bipartisan support has been given to approve the National Women’s History Month Resolution each year.
