National Women's History Month is an annual event that traces its beginnings to the first International Women's Day in 1911. In 1978, the school district of Sonoma, California participated in Women's History Week, an event designed focused around the week of March 26(International Women's Day). In 1981, responding to the growing popularity of the event, Congress passed a resolution making Women's History Week a national holiday. Congress legally expanded the focus to a whole month in 1987.
