Laphonza Butler leads this week’s Women’s History Month events
March is Women’s History Month, and the 2022 theme is “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” — a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic and a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided healing and hope throughout history.
The President’s Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (PACSW) has organized several events to celebrate.
