Women's History Month

Women's History Month is an annual declared month worldwide that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States, corresponding with International Women's Day on March 8.

The ACLU Women’s Rights Project has been championing women’s rights for the past 40 years since its founding by Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1972. We engage in direct litigation, public education efforts, and legislative advocacy to ensure that women have equal access to educational and economic opportunities and to bring an end to violence against them.
