Women in History Month In the United States, Women's History Month traces its beginnings back to the first International Women's Day in March 1911. Beginning in 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women's History Week stating, "From the first settlers who came to our shores…men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”
