Women’s History Month was first celebrated in 1981 after Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28. President Ronald Reagan proclaimed the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week”. Throughout the 1980’s, Congress continued to pass resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week”. In the early 1990’s, Congress passed additional resolutions which allowed the President to proclaim the month of March of each year as “Women’s History Month”. From that point on, March has been known as “Women’s History Month”, celebrating and recognizing the historical contributions women have made for the United States throughout history.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. (EXIM) and its Minority and Women Owned Business (MWOB) Office invites you to participate in a virtual event, Women's History Month: Exporting in a Global Market.
