This Friday, March 8, is International Women’s Day.

According to a statement from Disabled American Veterans, “March is National Women’s History Month, but its roots go back to March 8, 1857, when women from New York City factories staged a protest over working conditions.”

“International Women’s Day was first observed in 1909, and in 1981 Congress established National Women’s History Week to be commemorated the second week of March. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month.

Every year since, Congress has passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the President has issued a proclamation.”
