In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women. As a women’s organization, the Junior League of Nashville has a great deal to celebrate this month and we are honored to have our inaugural Women’s History Month program as we honor our past, celebrate our present, and boldly look forward to the future.
