Women’s History Month is celebrated in March. This annual commemoration, highlighting women’s contributions to society, was designated by Congress in 1987. While we all might not be able to gather together to celebrate this year, there are still plenty of ways to honor women this month and beyond.
Whether you prefer fiction or non-fiction, take time to read works by women authors. We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Becoming by Michelle Obama are great options.
There are numerous videos, documentaries and other films to stream this month. PBS offers a guide with a selection of content across many interests. Streaming services like Hulu and Netflix have film and documentary options like RBG and Knock Down the House.
If you’re able, donating time or money to a charitable organization supporting women is a great way to honor Women’s History Month. Global Fund for Women, Girls Who Code, Dress for Success and She Should Run offer donation and volunteering opportunities. If there is a cause important to you, seek out organizations supporting that cause and donate your time or money there.
