Women’s History Month traces its beginnings to the first International Women’s Day, held on March 8, 1911 in Copenhagen, spearheaded by Clara Zetkin, a German political leader. In 1981, responding to the growing popularity of the event in schools across the states, Congress passed a resolution making Women’s History Week a national American holiday. It was just six years later, 1987, when Congress legally expanded the celebration to a whole month.
