About Women’s History Month in San Francisco

March is nationally recognized as Women’s History Month. In 1980, a group of women came together in Santa Rosa, California to form the National Women’s History Project, a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress and the White House to designate the week of March 8th (International Women’s Day) as National Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress expanded the celebration, resulting in the entire month of March being declared National Women’s History Month.

Since 1996, the Board of the FRIENDS of the Commission on the Status of Women hosts an awards reception for the Women of the Year Awardees of the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors, to celebrate Women's History Month in March. It starts with a public ceremony  at City Hall to recognize the contributions of women in the community. The District Attorney joined the celebration in 2013.
