International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
March is also host to Women's History Month, which originated out of a weeklong celebration held by the school district of Sonoma, California in 1978. Women’s addition to history, culture, and the nation were paid homage during this celebration. President Jimmy Carter announced Women’s History Week the week of March 8th in 1980. Then by 1987, the Women’s History Project petitioned Congress to establish the celebration for the entire month.
Kelso School District celebrates and recognizes Women's History Month.
