President Jimmy Carter started it off by proclaiming the week of March 8th, 1980, as National Women’s History Week. By 1987, we’d expanded to a month with events all over the country celebrating women’s contributions to America. See womenshistorymonth.gov
To commemorate both the League of Women Voters’ 100th anniversary and the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, the LWVPBC Civics Education committee created a special edition of its MINI crossword booklets. The Series 4 booklet contains 41 MINIs that honor the contributions of over 250 women. Categories include activists, arts, Florida, Politics, professionals, and sports.
