Women's History Month
Every March, St. Louis Community College celebrates the many achievements of women through history and today with events, exhibits, panel discussions, contests, and more.
How was Women's History Month established?
In 1981 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.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March 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.”
