Women’s History Month 2024

By: History.com Editors

Updated: February 20, 2024 | Original: December 30, 2009

Mrs. Herbert Carpenter, bearing an American flag, marches in a parade for women's suffrage on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. Women’s History Month 2024 will take place from Friday, March 1 - Sunday, March 31, 2024. 

Why Do We Celebrate Women’s History Month?

Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to U.S. history. From Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony , Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks , the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.

The actual celebration of Women’s History Month grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California , in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.

A few years later, the idea caught on within communities, school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day , a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women, took place for the first time on March 8, 1911. Many countries around the world celebrate the holiday with demonstrations, educational initiatives and customs such as presenting women with gifts and flowers. 

The United Nations has sponsored International Women’s Day since 1975. When adopting its resolution on the observance of International Women’s Day, the United Nations General Assembly cited the following reasons: “To recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.”

Women's History Month Theme 2024

The  National Women's History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women's History Month. The 2024 theme celebrates  “ Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” This theme recognizes women who understand the need to eliminate bias and discrimination from individuals' lives and institutions.

Recognized as one of the first female gynecologists, Agnodice is said to have courageously practiced medicine in Greece when women faced the death penalty for doing so. Eventually caught, she was vindicated and allowed to continue when patients came to her defense.

Despite extraordinary medical advances throughout history, more than 800 women still die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth – 99 per cent of them in developing countries.

Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Following criticism for studying secular texts, celebrated writer and nun Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz of Mexico memorably defended women’s rights to education in 1691 by proclaiming “one can perfectly well philosophize while cooking supper." A national icon, today she appears on Mexican currency.

Even with substantial progress in achieving gender parity at all levels of education, disparities remain in some developing regions. For instance, only 70 girls are enrolled for every 100 boys in tertiary level education in sub-Saharan Africa.

Anna Filosofova

Ahead of her time, prominent women’s rights activist and Russian philanthropist Anna Filosofova believed it was better to educate and train the poor rather than provide cash benefits. In 1860, she co-founded a society to provide support to the poor, including not only affordable housing but also decent work for women.

Poverty is one of the greatest challenges of our time, disproportionally affecting women and girls; their health, employment and safety. Today, 836 million people still live in extreme poverty.

Kate Sheppard

New Zealand’s most celebrated suffragist, Kate Sheppard along with fellow campaigners presented a “monster” petition to Parliament demanding women’s suffrage with nearly 32,000 signatures — an instrumental move that led to New Zealand becoming the first self-governing country to grant national voting rights to women in 1893.

Women’s representation is still lagging in politics. In 2015, only 22 per cent of all national parliamentarians were female, a slow increase from 11.3 per cent in 1995.

Raichō Hiratsuka

A pioneering Japanese editor, writer and political activist, Raichō Hiratsuka co-founded her country’s first all-women run literary journal Seitō in 1911 through which she challenged women’s traditional roles at home. In the magazine’s inaugural issue, she emboldens women to “reveal the genius hidden within us!”

Women are severely underrepresented in the news today. Only around 1 in 4 people heard or read about in news are women. Also, women only hold 27 per cent of top management jobs in media organizations.

Doria Shafik

Doria Shafik catalyzed a women’s rights movement in Egypt when in 1951 she, alongside 1,500 women, stormed parliament demanding full political rights, pay equality and reforms to personal status laws. These efforts, along with countless others to come, helped pave the way to women’s right to vote in 1956.

Gender equality before the law still does not always translate into reality. Although more than 140 countries guarantee gender equality in their constitutions, women face inequalities directly and indirectly through laws, policies, stereotypes and social practices.

Rosalind Franklin

In 1951, British chemist Rosalind Franklin paved the way for the discovery of DNA’s double-helix structure through the revolutionary use of X-ray diffraction. Franklin captured the critical photo evidence through 100 hours of extremely fine beam X-ray exposure from a machine she had refined.

Women today comprise only around 30 per cent of researchers in natural sciences, engineering and technology, medical and health sciences, agricultural sciences, social sciences and humanities.

Rigoberta Menchú

The first indigenous person to win the Nobel Peace Prize, Rigoberta Menchú campaigned for social justice, ethno-cultural reconciliation and indigenous peoples’ rights during and after Guatemala’s Civil War (1960–1996). In 2006, she co-founded the Nobel Women's Initiative to magnify women’s work on peace, justice and equality.

Women are integral to lasting peace. Studies show there is a 35 per cent greater chance of peace agreements lasting 15 years when women participate. Yet women are still largely absent from the peace table.

Billie Jean King

A pioneering American tennis champion and social change activist, Billie Jean King famously threatened to boycott the U.S. Open in 1973 unless women were given equal prize money — a demand that was met, making the U.S. Open the first major tournament of its kind to offer pay equality.

Even with her efforts, the gender wage gap still exists for women in all walks of life. Globally, women earn 24 per cent less than men.

As a plaintiff, Unity Dow won a historic case in 1992 enabling women married to non-citizens the right to confer nationality to their children. Later, as Botswana's first female High Court judge, she gained international acclaim on a case that allowed Botswana’s San people to return to their ancestral homelands.

When it comes to nationality, progress still needs to be made. In more than 60 countries, women are denied the right to acquire, change or retain their nationality, including to confer nationality to non-national spouses.

Vandana Shiva

A staunch environmentalist, Vandana Shiva formed Navdanya in India during the early 1990s to conserve unique strains of seed crops and to educate farmers on eco-diversity. Under Navdanya, she also created a programme on biodiversity, food and water, which empowers women in protecting the livelihoods of their communities.

Sustainable development is a key driver to women’s economic empowerment. Yet, today, less than 20 per cent of landholders are women. Gender differences in access to land and credit can limit economic opportunities for women farmers.

Loveness Mudzuru & Ruvimbo Tsopodzi

Taking their government to court on child marriage, former child brides Loveness Mudzuru and Ruvimbo Tsopodzi made history in 2016 when Zimbabwe’s Constitutional Court ruled in their favour stating that nobody in the country may enter into marriage, including customary law unions, before the age of 18.

Worldwide, more than 700 million women alive today were married before age 18. Out of them, 250 million were married before 15.

The 2024 National Women’s History Theme

“women who advocate for equity, diversity and inclusion”.

2024 women's history month theme logo

Women from every background have long realized that an uneven playing field will never bring equality or justice. Many feel the critical need to speak up and work harder for fairness in our institutions and social interactions.

During 2024, we recognize the example of women who are committed to embracing everyone and excluding no one in our common quest for freedom and opportunity. They know that people change with the help of families, teachers and friends, and that young people in particular need to learn the value of hearing from different voices with different points of view as they grow up.

Today, equity, diversity and inclusion are powerful driving forces that are having a wide-ranging impact on our country. As members of families, civic and community groups, businesses and legislative bodies, women are in the forefront of reevaluating the status quo. They are looking anew at what harmful social policies and behaviors exist and, often subtly, determine our future. In response, women in communities across the nation are helping to develop innovative programs and projects within corporations, the military, federal agencies and educational organizations to address these injustices.

It takes courage for women to advocate for practical goals like equity, diversity and inclusion when established forces aim to misinterpret, exploit or discredit them. Throughout 2024, we honor local women from the past and present who have taken the lead to show the importance of change and to establish firmer safeguards, practices and legislation reflecting these values. Following decades of discrimination, we are proud to celebrate women who work for basic inclusion, equality and fairness.

Who are the women in your community or organization that you will honor?

Executive Order on Recognizing and Honoring Women’s History

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

     Section 1.  Policy.  Women and girls of all backgrounds have shaped our country’s history, from the ongoing fight for justice and equality to cutting-edge scientific advancements and artistic achievements.  Yet these contributions have often been overlooked.  We must do more to recognize the role of women and girls in America’s story, including through the Federal Government’s recognition and interpretation of historic and cultural sites.

     It is the policy of my Administration to recognize and honor the diverse trailblazers — including women and girls — who have contributed to the fabric of our Nation.  One of the National Park Service’s important functions is serving as the Nation’s storyteller by managing a constellation of sites on behalf of the American public that, together, help preserve and honor different chapters in our Nation’s history.  The National Park Service honors trailblazing women and their contributions to the Nation, from Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt, to Rosie the Riveter and Mamie Till-Mobley.  Still, women’s history is vastly underrepresented in our National Park System, creating an important opportunity to strengthen our Nation’s recognition of the role of women in shaping this country.

     This order directs actions that will strengthen the Federal Government’s recognition of women’s history and the achievements of women and girls from all backgrounds.  It builds on steps I have taken to advance equity and equality across the Federal Government and to help tell a more complete story of our Nation’s history, including through Executive Order 14020 of March 8, 2021 (Establishment of the White House Gender Policy Council), Executive Order 13985 of January 20, 2021 (Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government), and Executive Order 14091 of February 16, 2023 (Further Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government).  By honoring the women leaders of the past, we tell a more complete story of America and help build a more equal and equitable present and future.

     Sec. 2.  Definitions.  For purposes of this order:

(a)  The term “sites of national importance” includes National Park “System units” as defined in 54 U.S.C. 100102 (by reference to 54 U.S.C. 100501), national monuments designated by the Congress or by the President pursuant to 54 U.S.C. 320301, and National Historic Landmarks designated under 36 C.F.R. part 65.

Beaufort CCC Celebrates Women's History Month with Panel Presentation

In honor of Women's History Month, Beaufort County Community College hosted a panel presentation on March 14. The event featured a lineup of influential women from diverse backgrounds in public education, including community college vice president Keisha Jones, ESL teacher Janet Sueiro Rodman, and school principal Dr. Patricia Horton Albritton, whose remarkable journeys have made a profound impact on their communities and beyond. Jahmar Bradby, Beaufort CCC’s Men of Success coach, served as moderator for the panel.

Keisha Jones, a trailblazer in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), brings over 19 years of comprehensive experience across higher education, workforce development, and leadership. She serves as the vice president of student affairs and chief diversity officer at Davidson-Davie Community College, and the director of equity at the NC Student Success Center.

Janet Sueiro Rodman, born in New York City to Puerto Rican parents, dedicated her career to fostering support for the growing Latino community in Beaufort County. With a background in education and community outreach, Sueiro Rodman played a vital role in ensuring the successful integration of this population into the broader community.

Dr. Patricia Horton Albritton's journey is one of resilience and determination. Overcoming significant challenges as a teen mother, she pursued her education while raising her son. Dr. Horton Albritton held various leadership positions in education, culminating in her role as the principal of Snowden Elementary School in Aurora, N.C.

"The dedication of these women to our youth exemplifies the transformative power of education," said Jahmar Bradby. "They not only overcame structural hurdles through their own careers, but they have also helped the next generation to overcome their own hurdles."

The event was a celebration of the accomplishments and contributions of these remarkable women leaders while navigating barriers of around both race and gender, as they shared their insights and experiences in shaping a more inclusive and equitable future for all.

Women’s History Month Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination March 2018

Women’s History Month Women’s History Month honors and celebrates the struggles and achievements of American women throughout the history of the United States. The Department of Defense (DoD) pays tribute to the women who, through their steadfast determination and inspirational contributions, have shaped America’s history and continue to pave the way forward.

Women’s History Month Origin Women’s History Month has its origins in 1981 when Congress passed Public Law 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 Public Law 100-9 which designated the month of March, 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Women's History Origin

Women’s History Month • This year’s theme is: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms Of Discrimination. • This presentation features nine women: Pilot Bernice Haydu, Ensigns Harriet Pickens and Frances Wills, Lt. Cmdr. Marilyn Melendez Dykman, Lt. Susan Cuddy, Col. Debra Lewis, Capt. Eleanor L’Ecuyer, Capt. Mildred H. McAfee, and Pvt. Minnie Spotted Wolf.

Pilot Bernice “Bee” Haydu • Women have been graduating from the Air Force Academy since 1980 and flying in combat missions since Operation Desert Storm. Prior to this however, women served as Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASPs) during World War II. Bernice “Bee” Haydu not only served as a WASP, but fought for them to be recognized as veterans. • When the WASP program was disbanded in 1944, it left the women veterans no rank and no benefits for their service. • It wasn’t until 1975 that the WASPs, led by Haydu, made the first concerted effort to gain recognition as veterans from Congress. The bill passed the Senate but was denied in the House of Representatives. Bernice Haydu

WASPs Veteran Status • Haydu wrote on behalf of the WASPs, “These women served in a military capacity, wore uniforms, were subject to military discipline and courtesy, flew every military airplane manufactured for World War II and served their country replacing men pilots for active duty overseas. They also risked their lives daily, and 38 of these women died in the service of their country.” Photo courtesy of the Department of Defense In 1977 a reintroduced bill passed, giving the WASPs veteran status.

Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES) • James Forrestal, who became the new Secretary of the Navy in April, 1944, concluded that having a segregated Navy was not cost effective and the Navy announced its decision to welcome blacks into the WAVES on Oct. 19, 1944. Harriet Pickens and Frances Wills accepted the Navy’s invitation. Pickens' father, William Pickens, a founder of the National Association for Colored People, urged her to join. Wills decided to volunteer because she had no brothers to serve. Photo courtesy the U.S. Navy Harriet Pickens and Frances Wills

Ensigns Harriet Pickens and Frances Wills • In December 1944, Pickens and Wills received commissions in the WAVES, becoming the first female African-American officers in the U.S. Navy. • Out of 86,000 WAVES that served during World War II, there were only 72 African-American WAVES and just two officers. At a time when all military branches were segregated, this small group of African-American women created a lasting legacy for all women in the military.

Lieutenant Commander Marilyn Melendez Dykman • In 1991, Lt. Cmdr. Marilyn Melendez Dykman transferred from the U.S. Army to become the first Hispanic-American female aviator in the U.S. Coast Guard. • Her achievement helped pave the way for opportunities for female cadets of all races and ethnicities at the USCG. Photo courtesy of the U. S. Coast Guard Marilyn Melendez Dykman

Lieutenant Susan Ahn Cuddy • Trailblazer Susan Ahn Cuddy joined the U.S. Navy in 1942 after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. She was the first Asian-American woman to join the Navy and became the first female to operate flexible-mount or turret-mounted machine guns on an aircraft. She left the Navy in 1946 at the rank of Lieutenant. • After the war, she became an intelligence officer breaking codes for the Navy. She later joined the National Security Agency, where she ran a think tank of 300 linguists and other experts gathering intelligence. Photo courtesy of the U.S. Navy Susan A. Cuddy Naval Service

Lieutenant Susan Ahn Cuddy • In a 2012 Time interview, her son shared that her travels took her to the segregated South, where she would sit in the back of the bus with black people. Cuddy’s gesture was one of solidarity—by using “colored” bathrooms and complying with racial segregation laws, she was making a statement about her race and supporting those who did not have a choice. • She died at her home June 24, 2015 at age 100. Susan Cuddy TIME interview

Colonel Debra Lewis • Colonel Debra Lewis was a member of the first class of female cadets to graduate from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, changing 178 years of tradition at the once all-male academy. • Reflecting on her 30-year-Army career she said, “My choice to attend West Point was the first time I was exposed to extremely harsh negative words or disrespectful responses from people who did not know me personally, reacting simply because they could see I was a woman in a cadet uniform. Initially, every negative response hit me hard. In response, I developed a talent for finding productive ways to deal with such situations.” Colonel Debra Lewis

Colonel Debra Lewis • Lewis also holds the distinction of being the first female Soldier to command the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers districts in Philadelphia and Seattle. • In 2006, she became the first woman to command an engineer brigade in Iraq. Her tour began shortly after the Samarra Mosque bombing and coincided with the height of insurgent attacks and increase in number of U.S. troops. It was in Iraq that she applied all that she had learned. “I actually felt blessed for the many hardships along the way that helped to prepare me.” Photo courtesy U.S. Army

Captain Eleanor L’Ecuyer • In 1944, frustrated by her clerical work, Eleanor C. L’Ecuyer volunteered to join the U.S. Coast Guard Women’s Reserve, better known as the SPARs—a contraction of the Coast Guard motto, “Semper Paratus – Always Ready.” L’Ecuyer said, “I went for a walk at the suggestion of my boss and came back a member of the Coast Guard.” Her choice would forever impact policies and increase opportunities for women serving in the Coast Guard. • After her discharge in 1946, she activated her G.I. Bill benefits and earned a law degree. However, job openings for a female attorney in 1950 were far and few. In 1951, she rejoined the Coast Guard and became the first female attorney hired, although because of her sex, she was not allowed to serve in that role. Captain Eleanor L'Ecuyer

Captain Eleanor L’Ecuyer • L’Ecuyer put her law degree to use. She wrote successful challenges to several policies that would increase career potential for women in the Coast Guard. She argued that being pregnant was not a disabling condition and therefore, should not be grounds for discharging women. Additionally, she challenged policy limiting women to serving only 20 years. • She served until 1971, rising to the rank of captain, the highest rank a woman could achieve at the time. She holds the distinction of being the longest serving SPAR. Photo courtesy of the U.S. Coast Guard

Captain Mildred H. McAfee • As Director of the WAVES, Captain Mildred H. McAfee (the first woman commissioned in the U.S. Naval Reserve and the first woman to receive the Navy Distinguished Service Medal) welcomed all qualified candidates. As its first Director, McAfee guided the growth of the WAVES to a force of more than 80,000 Navy women in a variety of occupational specialties. • She was also appointed the first female line officer in the Navy on Aug. 3, 1942, at a time when the Navy wasn’t sure it needed women. Photo courtesy the U.S. Navy Mildred McAfee/WAVES Mildred McAfee

Private Minnie Spotted Wolf • In 1943, Minnie Spotted Wolf, a Blackfoot Indian, broke the barriers of both race and gender when she became the first American Indian to enlist in the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve. • GerardettaEngland, Spotted Wolf’s daughter, said her mother started thinking about joining the military after the U.S. entered World War II when she was 18, but was discouraged by a recruiter who told her “the war was really not for women. But Mom really wanted to go into the military to serve her country. Her brother had died, and she knew nobody else in the family would be able to serve.” Minnie Spotted Wolf

Minnie Spotted Wolf • When Spotted Wolf was finally ready to enlist, her father died. Her mother urged her to pursue her dream. According to England, her mother told her, “Your country needs you more.” • Spotted Wolf’s ranch living and hard work served her well as a heavy-equipment operator for the Marines, and her unique background drew significant attention during the war. • England said, “Mom was proud of who she was. She wasn’t in the military just for herself, but for the Indian people. She wanted others to know who she was and where she came from.” Photo courtesy of The National Archives Minnie Spotted Wolf

Conclusion • Throughout America's history, women have struggled to gain rights not simply for themselves, but for many other under-represented and disenfranchised groups in America. • Generations of women have courageously broken down barriers, shattered stereotypes, and changed our society. • During Women’s History Month, we honor the women who have diligently worked toward ensuring dignity, equality, and human rights for all.

Betty Christiansen, publisher and owner of the Coulee Region Women Magazine in La Crosse, Wis., gives her presentation as the featured guest speaker for the 2024 Fort McCoy Women’s History Month observance March 19, 2024, at Fort McCoy, Wis. According to her biographical information at the magazine’s website at https://www.crwmagazine.com, Christiansen “is a longtime writer and editor who has lived and worked in the Twin Cities, New York, and La Crosse, where she was editor of the magazine for 10 years before taking the helm as publisher. She loves to knit and dreams of a life structured around writing and travel.” The observance was held at McCoy’s Community Center where dozens of Fort McCoy community members attended the event that was organized by the Fort McCoy Equal Opportunity Office. Each year, the Department of Defense honors the women who have shaped U.S. history, and through their contributions paved the way forward for future female pioneers, according to the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute.
