Celebrating Women’s HERstory Month
The month is intended to remember the contributions
of notable and ordinary women, in hopes that both
young girls and boys are inspired to achieve success
despite any obstacle they may face.
The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County
Commission on the Status of Women began a
"Women's History Week" celebration in 1978 in
California. The week was chosen to coincide with
International Women's Day, which falls on March 8. However, one week was considered
inadequate and in 1987, at the request of the National Women's History Project, Congress
expanded the week to a month.
Women of Color Making a Difference
Elizabeth Eckford: A member of the Little Rock Nine, Elizabeth
Eckford was one of nine high school students who integrated
Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957 despite high
racial tension.
Malala Yousafzai: An advocate for
girls' education, which resulted in the
Taliban issuing a death threat against
her. On October 9, 2012, a gunman shot Malala when
she was traveling home from school. She survived,
and has continued to speak out on the importance of
education. In 2014, she won a Noble Peace
Prize making her the youngest person to
receive the award.
America Ferrera: A prominent advocate for immigration reform,
gender equality, sex trafficking, and the education of children, Ferrera
was born from parents who emigrated from Honduras to Los Angeles.
As the first Latina to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a
Comedy Series, Ferrera has done work to engage and empower young
Latinos in the political process, while also diversifying the television
