Women's History Month

March 2020

February 10, 2020

Whereas: In 1980 a Joint Congressional Resolution declared the week of March 8 as National Women's History Week, and in 1987 Congress expanded the celebration of women's contributions to the entire month of March; and 

Whereas: Through leadership, innovation, and ingenuity, generations of women have made significant contributions in science, medicine, technology, business, politics, entrepreneurship, and arts and culture; and 

Whereas: Women have been leaders in securing their own rights of suffrage and equal opportunity; and in the abolitionist, emancipation, industrial labor, civil rights, and peace movements, creating a more fair and just society for all; and

Whereas: Whether serving in elected positions across America, leading groundbreaking civil rights movements, venturing into unknown frontiers, or programming revolutionary technologies, generations of women that knew their gender was no obstacle to what they could accomplish have long stirred new ideas and opened new doors, having a profound and positive impact on our community; and 

Whereas: Despite their contributions, the role of women in history has been consistently overlooked and undervalued in literature, education and culture; and 

Whereas: This month we celebrate countless pioneering women and their victories, and we continue our work to build a society where our daughters have the same possibilities as our sons.

Now, Therefore Be It Resolved that the City Council hereby declares March 2020 to be Women's History Month in the City of Roseville, County of Ramsey, State of Minnesota, U.S.A.
