Women’s History Month, which just finished its annual March run, has only been around since the 1980s. It was International Women’s Day first, and then Women’s History Week, until Congress decided that, like Beyonce belts out in her song “Run the World (Girls),” girls do in fact run the world, therefore, there should probably be a month dedicated to the mothers of mankind.
They celebrate it in Australia, Canada, and the US. Each year and each country has a theme; in the past, it has been “Women’s Education- Women’s Empowerment” and “Women in the Business of Food” in the US and Australia, respectively. I had no idea about any of this information until I started researching for this article.
