WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

Women’s History Month celebrates women and their accomplishments. Their tagline is “our history is our strength.” This year’s theme:

The 2022 Women’s History theme, “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” is both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

Women as healers harken back to ancient times. Healing is the personal experience of transcending suffering and transforming it to wholeness. The gift of hope spreads light to the lives of others and reflects a belief in the unlimited possibilities of this and future generations. Together, healing and hope are essential fuels for our dreams and our recovery.

The Women’s History Alliance asks you to celebrate the month by honoring the women in your community that provide healing and promote hope.

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.

March sparks for women

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.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: March 8th is the annual INTERNATIONAL WOMAN’S DAY — A global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Socially Sparked News will have more details on the upcoming March 8th events leading up to the Day, so stay tuned.

March is Music In Our Schools Month

MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH

Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM®) is the annual celebration during March which engages music educators, students and communities from around the country in promoting the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools.

This year’s theme is “Music: The Sound of My Heart.” 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.
