March is Women’s History Month

The 2016 theme is

Working to Form a More Perfect Union: 

 Honoring Women in Public Service and Government.

Throughout the country, we depend on effective leaders, innovators, and visionaries in the public sector, and this year we honor their service and dedication to the public good.

Plan an event around this year’s Women’s History Month theme, “Forming a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government.” 

  • Make women’s historic achievement visible by requesting that all government agencies at the local, state and federal level honor women in public service and government.
  • Ask for special proclamations by city councils, boards of supervisors, state leaders and federal departments. Type  Sample Proclamation into our website’s http://www.nwhp.org search engine for an example.
  • Encourage women’s history programs and celebrations in your children’s schools from K- college and consider an appropriate way to recognize women in your workplace.
  • Ask the PTA or another organization to sponsor an essay contest that would encourage students to write about women in public service or government in their own communities.
  • Contact your local bookstores, libraries, and public centers to have special women’s history programs that feature women writers and historians.
