The theme for 2019 is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence,” and Women’s History Month honors the struggles and achievements of American women throughout the history of the United States. This year’s theme celebrates women who have led efforts to end violence and injustice and stressed the need to restore respect and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace.
