In 1987, the National Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to designate March as Women’s History Month.
Women’s History Month celebrates contributions women have made to the United States and it also recognizes specific achievements women have made throughout American history in a variety of fields. In early women’s suffrage movements, white women’s suffrage was prioritized over voting rights for all women. In 1920, Black women in the South and Latinas from the Southwest were still barred from voting because of racism. Despite being slighted, Black women were still integral to the fight for justice. This month, join us as we celebrate Women’s History.💛🖤 (Produced for @livefreeusa by @hushharbormedia)
