Women’s History Month


Women’s History Month was established in 1987 – 76 years after the first observance of International Women’s Day – to honor women’s accomplishments and contributions throughout American history. The celebration and recognition of Women’s History Month was fought for by generations of activists who drew attention to the oppression and inequalities women faced in society.

RHAP is proud to honor the achievements of women whose impact on science, politics, art, and other aspects of American society is vast. This Women’s History Month, please join us in taking a look back at some of the change-makers and unsung heroes we featured last year in our reproductive justice campaign, A Common Thread: Weaving reproductive health, rights, and justice.
