Historical Breakdown

Commonly known for Leprechauns and Easter bunnies, March is now known also for National Women’s Month. Tracing its origins to International Women’s Day established in 1911 and organized celebrations in schools and institutions in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, the milestone has certainly grown overtime. In 1981, Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28, which “authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as ‘Women’s History Week.” The National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to pass Pub. = 100-9 and make March Women’s History Month in 1987 and every year thereafter. But there’s no better way to celebrate a movement than with music about women’s empowerment.
