Powerful Women: Celebrate female trailblazer’s influence throughout history and explore their contributions today. After the feminist push for equal access to education and jobs in 1980, public law was passed by Congress in 1987 establishing March as Women’s History Month. “It is important to teach women’s history to youth in schools because it is important to understand women’s journey to where they are now. It is important to understand that often in the past (and in some cases still today) women’s voices were silenced and they were treated like property, not people,” English teacher Annemarie Gaudin said.
