Created to celebrate the many achievements of women in this country, Women’s History Month has had a long journey to where we are today. Started from humble beginnings as International Women's Day in 1911 (which still happens on March 8), it evolved into Women’s History Week in 1978, finally becoming a full month in 1987. This Women's History Month is very monumental as 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote in the United States.
In a world where the contributions of women often still go unsung and unheard, taking a month to elevate the those who are pushing the needle forward is still so important. Join the Phillyfunguide in celebrating the amazing women of both past and present as they continue to awe and hopefully inspire a new generation of innovators and achievers!
From film screenings to museum exhibits, Philly is pulling out all the stops for Women's History Month.
