In 1987, Congress designated March as National Women’s History Month. Each year, the President issues a special Proclamation in recognition of the enormous contributions of women to every aspect of American life and culture, often while enduring great hardship and sacrifice. For Women’s History Month 2022, The National Women’s History Alliance is honoring caregivers and frontline workers. The theme, “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” acknowledges those women “who, in both public and private life, provide healing and promote hope for the betterment of all.” Click here to learn more about this year’s theme; click on the book jackets below to be taken to catalog links.
