Women’s History Month gives us an opportunity to recognize women’s achievements and contributions made throughout United States history. This month celebrates the role of women in a variety of fields – science, literature, arts, education, politics and more. NACRJ encourages you to take time to explore the inspiring trials and tribulations of American women of the past and present. Learning about women’s history in our country is a step in the right direction toward providing a fruitful future for the next generations of successful women.
The photos below represent the great strides women have made advancing gender equality, workforce diversity and public policy. These images call on us to remember with great pride the immensely important accomplishments of women who dedicate their lives to creating a more just and equitable society.
