National Women's Month in the United States has its roots in International Women's Day, celebrated on March 8th. The day has been marked by the United Nations since 1975 but it was observed in smaller ways in the US as far back as 1911 — nearly a decade before American women were granted the right to vote. In 1982, President Reagan issued and proclaimed Women's History Week for the next few years until they realized that the accomplishments of American women couldn't possibly all be celebrated and appreciated in a single week. So it was in 1987 that the week expanded to a month, and every president since Reagan has continued the tradition. Every year, the National Women's History Project chooses a theme for the month. This year's theme is "Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business." (Source: CNN)
