Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month: Tuesday, March 1 – Thursday, March 31

USA Truck celebrates and supports #WomensHistoryMonth.

Women’s History Month celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture and society. We honor all the women who broke and continue to break barriers and pave the way for future generations.

Throughout the month of March, we will feature some of the incredible women of USA Truck. Stay tuned!

Why Do We Celebrate Women’s History Month?
Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. From Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks, the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.

The actual celebration of Women’s History Month grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa.

A few years later, the idea had caught on within communities, school districts and organizations across the country. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.

Women’s History Month Theme 2022
The National Women’s History Alliance selects and publishes the yearly theme. The theme for 2022 – Providing Healing, Promoting Hope –  is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.
