President Trump declared March to be recognized as Women’s History Month on Wednesday, following the tradition of the National Women’s March.
This is very interesting for Trump to talks about as some of the news media outlets have viewed trump as a “women hater or sexist.”
The newly claimed month roots from International Women’s Day, which is celebrated on March 8. This day has been marked by the United Nations since 1975.
According to the National Women’s History Project, the success of local projects back in the day during Women’s History Week bubbled up back to the Carter White House.
Jimmy Carter issued the very first presidential statement on Women’s History Week in 1980.
Originally this was for the Equal Rights Amendment, which was passed by Congress and became the 27th Amendment.
Throughout history women have struggled with equality and especially with things like equal pay.
Each president has done something different for National Women’s History Month.
Women have come a long way, but most recently have felt attacked by the new president.
Trumps remarks throughout his campaigning have been degrading to women and many women felt victimized by him.
Although, not all women felt that way it is very important to recognize what Trump is saying, if anything about women.
It is also important to recognize what Trump has said or is doing in the media, so that everyone knows.
So far he hasn’t done much, but this is one progressive step in equality for women.
