Since 1987, March has been declared National Women's History Month. During this month, we all take a moment to celebrate the many achievements of women throughout history and the vast strides made by women today. So what can you do to honor Women's History Month? Well it's the perfect time to read up on both famous and unsung heroines throughout the ages to learn about the role women have played in making history here in Florida and throughout the world. Here are some links to get you started:

And you don't have to just stop there. There are a number of things that you can do to honor the women around you. Write a letter to a woman who has inspired you, donate to a women's organization, attend a local women's rally in your area, or host your own event to celebrate the amazing women in your life.


For generations women have resolved conflicts in their homes and communities. To recognize those women this year's theme by the National Women's History Alliance is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.” The theme honors women past and present who embraced efforts to end war, violence, and injustice using nonviolent methods.
