Women's History Month 2022

Women's History Month originated in 1982 with what was then called "Women's History Week." In 1987, the National Women's History Project asked Congress to make March 1987 "Women's History Month." Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions asking and giving the President the power to make March of each year Women's History Month. Proclamations have been made by presidents every year since 1995 to make March Women's History Month. These proclamations celebrate the contributions and achievements made by American women in a variety of fields throughout the course of history. OIE celebrates all women on this 2022 Women's History Month. We've selected a few stories that celebrate the women of Duke.
