Their tagline is “our history is our strength.” This year’s theme: “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.”

Throughout 2023, the National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA) will encourage recognition of women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”7332″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” link=”https://www.womenshistory.org/womens-history/womens-history-month”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]While the concept began in the 1970s, it wasn’t until 1980 when President Jimmy Carter declared a proclamation. By 1987, the advocacy efforts came to fruition when Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.

This year’s theme is “Music is All of Us.”

This Socially Sparked® theme seems very appropriate as music is what has helped many of us through the pandemic. More importantly, music has helped students, school, and community. And, music will continue to be the thing that gets us all through the days ahead.  MIOSM is organized by National Association for Music Education (NAFME), among the world’s largest arts education organizations and the only association that addresses all aspects of music education.
