WOMEN'S
HISTORY




Women's history is the study of the role that women have played
in history, together with the methods needed to study women. It
includes the study of the history of the growth (and decline) of
woman's rights throughout recorded history, the examination of
individual women of historical significance, and the effect that
historical events have had on women. Inherent in the study of
women's history is the belief that more traditional recordings of
history have minimized or ignored the contributions of women and
the effect that historical events had on women as a whole; in this
respect, woman's history is often a form of historical revisionism,
seeking to challenge or expand the traditional historical consensus.

As activists in women's liberation, discussing and analyzing the
oppression and inequalities they experienced as women, they felt it
imperative to find out about the lives of their foremothers—and found
very little scholarship in print. History was written mainly by men
and about men's activities in the public sphere—war, politics,
diplomacy and administration. Women are usually excluded and, when
mentioned, are usually portrayed in sex-stereotypical roles, such as
wives, mothers, daughters and mistresses. History is value-laden in
regard to what is considered historically 'worthy'.

WOMEN'S HISTORY
MONTH




Growing out of a small-town school event in California, Women’s
History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history,
culture and society. The United States has observed it annually
throughout the month of March since 1987. The 2012 theme, “Women’s
Education—Women’s Empowerment,” honors pioneering teachers and
advocates who helped women and other groups gain access to advanced
learning.




International Women’s Day


International Women’s Day, a global celebration of the economic,
political and social achievements of women, took place for the
first time on March 8, 1911. Many countries around the world
celebrate the holiday with demonstrations, educational initiatives
and customs such as presenting women with gifts and flowers. The
United Nations has sponsored International Women’s Day since 1975.
When adopting its resolution on the observance of International
Women’s Day, the United Nations General Assembly cited the following
reasons: “To recognize the fact that securing peace and social
progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental
freedoms require the active participation, equality and development
of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the
strengthening of international peace and security.”
