March With Me

Women's History Month

MARCH IS WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH.

For 31 days, the nation celebrates women’s contributions and accomplishments.

The Military Women’s Memorial (MWM) is delighted to join the celebration and to have the opportunity to reinforce what we do every day – tell the stories of America’s military women – highlighting their contributions, accomplishments, and sacrifice in service to America.

The legacy of women’s service in and with the military is long and storied, covering the entire history of the nation. While sometimes disregarded, discredited, and their service fraught with challenges, women persevered and continued to step up – they just wanted to serve.

Trailblazers from across the decades have made it possible for women today to serve in America’s Armed Forces at every level and in every job.
