5 Ways To Celebrate Women's History Month

A time to recognize the contributions women have made to history, culture and society.

Observed in the United States every March since 1987, Women’s History Month is a time to recognize the contributions and achievements women have made to history, culture and society. For those wondering how to celebrate the month this year, we’ve rounded up a few ideas to get you started. Our list includes watching movies led by empowering women and reading books written by female writers, as well as getting educated on the history of women’s rights.

Continue scrolling to see how you can celebrate Women’s History Month this year.

Learn about the history of women’s rights and the issues women still face today.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, it’s important to understand the history of women’s rights, which helps us better understand the issues that women are still facing to this day. If you’re not sure where to begin, look to credible resources such as UN Women, which offers information via its website and through videos. It’s also good to keep in mind that this year’s Women’s History Month is themed “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” with the aim to recognize caregivers and frontline workers throughout the ongoing pandemic.

Watch inspiring movies led by empowering women.

Movies are a great, accessible way to learn about female leaders, whether it be a film about real-life figures like Frida Kahlo and Greta Thunberg, or a story of iconic fictional characters. Enjoy movie nights with your loved ones while watching educational titles or works created by female writers and producers. You can find our top 12 picks here.

Read books written by female authors.

Another way to celebrate women this month is to add books written by women to your reading list. You can look to classic authors such as Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf, or read about inspiring figures in history like Anne Frank and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Look to platforms like CNN and Barnes & Noble for recommendations.

Support a women’s nonprofit organization.

Support a nonprofit organization that works with women and girls to help make a change. Consider volunteering or donating to nonprofits like Planned Parenthood, GirlTrek, Girls on the Run, 500 Women Scientists and Helping Women Period, as well as organizations such as UN Women that are supporting Ukrainian women and girls.

Support women-owned businesses.

Female entrepreneurs experience all kinds of issues while running their businesses, ranging from pregnancy discrimination to gender bias from investors. Whether you’re shopping for clothing, beauty products or home decor, or simply ordering takeout for lunch, support women-owned businesses throughout the month.
