Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. The United States has observed it annually throughout the month of March since 1987. National Women’s history month 2017 theme is “honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business” which honors women who have successfully challenged the role of women in both business and the paid labor force.  Women have always worked, but often their work has been undervalued and unpaid.

“So the work continues. And for all the young women in this room, all the young men, we can never be complacent. Because we have seen in recent times how quickly things can be taken away if we aren’t vigilant, if we don’t know our history, if we don’t continue the work.”  —- Michelle Obama
