Celebrating the Women of United Way

According to the Library of Congress, Women’s History Month began as Women’s History Week in 1982, when Congress authorized the president to proclaim the week on March 7 of the following year. Five years later, Congress designated the entire month to celebrate the contributions and achievements women have made throughout American history.

This year, United Way of King County celebrates Women’s History Month by recognizing some of the women who have helped make our work possible–from current and former staff, to board members, to grantees, to those who helped lead our events and campaigns. We’ve asked several of those women to share their knowledge and wisdom on International Women’ Day, a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
