March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate and elevate the contributions and accomplishments of women in all their diverse representations, now and throughout history.

Women’s History Month was first celebrated with a week, not a month, in 1981. But, by 1987 Congress passed a series of resolutions, asking and authorizing the President to declare March as Women’s History Month every year. Every U.S. president since 1988 has issued a proclamation of that declaration.

Here are just a few of the many resources available to elevate this special month on websites and in social media, using hashtag #WomensHistoryMonth.

How will you or your chapter celebrate Women’s History Month? Let us know by tagging us in your social media posts on Facebook (facebook.com/pflag) and Twitter (twitter.com/pflag), so we can work together to elevate the achievements of lesbian, bisexual, transgender, gender-expansive, queer, straight and cisgender women from yesterday and today.
