March is Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month.  This recognition, led by the National Women’s History Project, first began as a national celebration week on March 7, 1982, as “Women’s History Week."  In 1988, the entire month of March was designated as “Women’s History Month”, and it remains a national month of celebration.   Annually, the White House issues a Proclamation for Women’s History Month.  The 2015 theme for Women’s History Month is “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives”.

VA is participating in Women’s History Month by celebrating success of women and women Veterans.  This communications plan will only be focused on the activities surrounding women Veterans.  To tie into the theme of “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives”, VA is focusing the month on “Women Veterans Make History”.  The stories of women Veterans are important to the fabric of United States history.  Women Veterans are leaders.  They have broken barriers for the generations that have followed and capitalized on the many leadership opportunities afforded by their military service.  The skills and experiences women Veterans gain from their military service lead to a lifetime of achievement in their careers, contributions to communities, and their families.  VA is committed to honoring women Veterans and providing them with the benefits and services that they have earned.
