The month of March gives us all an opportunity to celebrate Women’s History Month, honoring all women everywhere – from women who live out their dream job every day, to admired celebrities and changemakers throughout the world.
In 1908, a bold group of change makers united and marched for better labor laws, working conditions, and the right to vote, a push for equality that continues today. In March of 1972, Title IX was passed, specifically created to protect women from gender discrimination and in 1975, the United Nations officially began recognizing March 8 as International Women’s Day. Finally, in 1987, Congress declared March as Women’s History Month.
Since then, each year, the National Women’s History Alliance assigns Women’s History Month a theme and for 2023, the theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” This theme recognizes women throughout history who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling – including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, news, and social media.
As we continue to recognize Women’s History Month, at ViaPath Technologies we celebrate all the contributions made by women whether it be at home, in our communities, or in the workplace.
