Celebrate Women’s History Month in Boston

Women’s History Month got its start in 1981 when Congress and President Reagan proclaimed the week of March 7, 1982 as Women’s History Week. In 1987 a petition by the National Women’s History Project led Congress to designate the entire month of March as Women’s History Month. We’ll think it, you say it…
