The Power of a woman's voice=Голос жінки має силу

до Місяця жіночої історії=Women's History Month

There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard.

Не може бути справжньої демократії, якщо голоси жінок не будуть почуті. 
Hillary Clinton


Women's History Month is a time to honor the women who have made important sacrifices and contributions to society in both the past and present and educating people about the important impacts powerful women. It has been annually observed in the United States and other countries, including the United Kingdom and Australia, every March since 1987. The month-long commemoration started with Women’s History Day in 1978, organized by the school district of Sonoma, California. Hundreds of students participated in the essay competitions, many presentations were given, and a parade was held in Santa Rosa. The idea caught on and, a few years later, school districts, communities, and organizations all over the country were celebrating the day. In 1980, the National Women’s History Alliance championed for the holiday to be observed as a national week, and this was backed by President Jimmy Carter, who issued the first proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The following year, Congress forwarded a resolution establishing a national observance. Six years later, the expansion of the event to the whole month of March was successfully petitioned by the National Women’s History Project. During the month of March, we give a little extra attention to all of the amazing accomplishments of strong, determined women. Every woman has a story to tell and gifts to share with the world. Women are inspirational. Learning about women who have stood up for their rights and fought for what they believe is fantastic motivation. We all have the power to influence the direction our world is headed in, and National Women’s History Month reminds us of that.
This month is an excellent opportunity to put a spotlight on all of the major things women accomplish each and every day. From domestic chores and carrying babies to fighting wars and governing countries, women are pretty darn amazing. Each year, there is a theme for Women's History Month that is created by the National Women's History Alliance. The 2023 theme is "Celebrating Women Who Tell Stories," which recognizes "women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, blogs, podcasts, news and social media," according to the National Women's History Alliance website.

Місяць жіночої історії – міжнародна ініціатива, що відзначається з 1987 року у США, Австралії, Канаді, Великобританії та інших країнах. Основне покликання ініціативи – підкреслити роль жінок в історичних подіях та сучасності. Почалося святкування Дня жіночої історії в 1978 році, яке було організоване шкільним округом Сонома, Каліфорнія. Сотні студентів взяли участь у конкурсах, написаннях есе, було представлено багато презентацій, а в Санта-Роза відбувся парад. Ідея прижилася, і через кілька років шкільні округи, громади та організації по всій країні святкували цей день. У 1980 році Національний жіночий історичний альянс виступив за те, щоб свято відзначалося як національний тиждень, і це було підтримано президентом Джиммі Картером, який видав першу прокламацію, проголошуючи  Національний тижнь жіночої історії. Наступного року Конгрес прийняв резолюцію про встановлення національного свята. Через шість років Національний жіночий історичний проект успішно подав петицію про розширення заходу на весь березень. У березні ми приділяємо  більше уваги всім дивовижним досягненням сильних, рішучих жінок. У кожної жінки є історія, яку можна розповісти і  якою можна поділитися зі світом. Жінки надихають. Цей місяць — чудова нагода привернути увагу до всіх головних речей, які жінки роблять щодня. Від домашніх до воєнних справ і правління країнами. Жінки справді неймовірні. Щороку існує тема Місяця жіночої історії, яка створюється Національним альянсом жіночої історії. Тема 2023 року — «Відзначення жінок, які розповідають історії», присвячена жінкам, які брали активну участь у всіх формах медіа, включаючи друк, радіо, телебачення, сцену, блоги, подкасти, новини та соціальні мережі.
