Women in Iowa: 2024

Mar 01, 2024

In 1981, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution establishing National Women’s History Week. The week was chosen to coincide with International Women’s Day, March 8. In 1987, Congress expanded the week to a month. Every year since, Congress and the Iowa General Assembly have passed a resolution for Women’s History Month, and the U.S. president and Iowa’s Governor have issued a proclamation.
