Women’s History Month 2024

02.28.24

March welcomes Women’s History Month. We come together to honor all those who experience life through the lens, body, spirit, and identity of a woman. 

Explore a few ways you can celebrate Women’s History Month— past, present, future, and fluid— in 2024.

 

The 2024 National Women’s History Theme

This year, the Women’s History Month theme, “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion,” celebrates the relentless efforts of women dedicated to eradicating bias and discrimination. Explore this playlist of women who broke barriers to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in their fields. 


Celebrate International Women's Day 

Friday, March 8th, is International Women's Day

The 2024 International Women's Day theme is "Inspire Inclusion." It reminds us of the collective journey toward gender equality, championed not by the united efforts of those who value human rights.
