Soroptimist Huntington Beach Celebrates Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is an annual observance to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women’s Day on March 8.

Women’s history is the study of the role that women have played in history and the methods required to do so. It includes the study of the history of the growth of women’s rights throughout history, personal achievements over a period of time, the examination of individual and groups of women of historical significance, and the effect that historical events have had on women. Inherent in the study of women’s history is the belief that more traditional recordings of history have minimized or ignored the contributions of women to different fields and the effect that historical events had on women as a whole; in this respect, women’s history is often a form of historical revisionism, seeking to challenge or expand the traditional historical consensus.  (source: wikipedia)

The National Women’s History Month’s theme for 2024 celebrates “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” The theme recognizes women throughout the country who understand that, for a positive future, we need to eliminate bias and discrimination entirely from our lives and institutions.
