Description:  

National Women's History Month was initiated by the National Women's History Project (NWHP), a nonprofit educational organization founded in 1980 to "promote gender equity through education about women's diverse lives and accomplishments." The organization was an outgrowth of a 1978 California committee formed to address the lack of inclusion of women's history in the educational curriculum of K-12 schools. IN 1981, the NWHP successfully lobbied lobbied Congress to declare a Joint Congressional Resolution for "National Women's History Week." Congress expanded the celebration to an entire month in 1987.
