Women's History Month

About Women's History Month

At the University of Dayton, we celebrate Women's History Month during the month of March each year. Through humble beginnings as "Women's History Week" in the early 1980s, this celebration has grown over the years through joint resolutions of Congress, presidential proclamations, and community organization by the American people.

Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.


This guide is intended as a nonexhaustive resource for anyone interested in women's history! In it, we recognize the intersectional nature of identity, and hope to highlight voices and stories across a wide swath of lived experiences, including (but certainly not limited to) women of color, native women, women with disabilities, transgender women and those in the larger LGBTQIA+ community.

The UD community is welcome to suggest resources, guides, or any other information relevant to this guide by contacting Ione Damasco.
