Board Resolution Proclaims March 2024 as Women's History Month

Board Resolution Proclaims March 2024 as Women's History Month

The San Diego County Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution proclaiming March 2024 as Women's History Month. Resolution No. 2024-05 reads:

WHEREAS Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s valuable contributions to history, culture, and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987; and 

WHEREAS the 2024 theme for Women’s History Month is, “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion”; and 

WHEREAS American women have played and continue to play critical economic, cultural, and social role in every sphere of the life of the nation by constituting a significant portion of the labor force working inside and outside of the home and providing most of the volunteer labor force; and 

WHEREAS American women were particularly important in the establishment of early charitable, philanthropic, and cultural institutions in our nation; and 

WHEREAS American women of every race, class, and ethnic background served as early leaders in the forefront of every major progressive social change movement; and 

WHEREAS American women have served our country courageously in the military; and 

WHEREAS American women have been leaders, not only in securing their own rights of suffrage and equal opportunity, but also in the abolitionist movement, the emancipation movement, the industrial labor movement, the civil rights movement, and other movements, especially the peace movement, which create a more fair and just society for all; and 

WHEREAS despite these contributions, the role of American women in history has been consistently overlooked and undervalued, in the literature, teaching, and study of American history. 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the San Diego County Board of Education and county superintendent of schools do hereby adopt this resolution to proclaim March as Women’s History Month.
