Kintock Celebrates Women’s History Month
Kintock is proud to celebrate Women's History Month in March. Since 1987, the United States has recognized the month of March as Women’s History Month as a time to pay tribute to women's contributions to history, culture and society.
The 2022 Women's History theme, “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” is both a celebration of and “tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history,” according to the Library of Congress.
Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when 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.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.”
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. Some special events include:
Her Story: How Women and Girls Transformed the World!
