CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — Beginning Thursday, March 1st and for the next 31 days, women around the nation will be honored during Women’s History Month.

The origins of this commemoration started in 1981 after congress proclaimed the week of March 7th ‘Women’s History Week.’

The National Women’s History Project decided seven days wasn’t enough, hence Women’s History Month was born in 1987.
