In 1978, women’s history month started out as ‘women’s history week’ in Sonoma County. In 1981, thanks to a congressional resolution, it became a national event. Finally, in 1987, Congress expanded the celebration to a month, officially declaring March as Women’s History Month.
The Green Economy Post, a blog portal that provides site visitors with green career information, recognized 10 women leaders in solar and wind energy.
