Women’s History Month is a national celebration in the United States of America that started in 1982, when the President proclaimed the week beginning March 7th as "Women's History Week." In 1987 Congress designated the entire month of March as "Women's History Month" after being petitioned by the National Women's History Project. Since then, presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month," celebrating the specific achievements and contributions women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields (Women's History Month, n.d.).
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global celebration that has occurred for well over a century: the first gathering for International Women's Day was in 1911. Today it is supported by groups all over the world; International Women's Day belongs to all people everywhere and is not a county, group, or organization specific event. It celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world and calls on people to take action towards advancing women's equality (International Women's Day, n.d.).
