March With Me – Women’s History Month Celebration Kickoff at MWM

March 3 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

March With Me - Celebrate Women's History Month at the Military Women's Memorial

Join us on March 3 at the Military Women’s Memorial as we kick off “March With Me” – a celebration of Women’s History Month at the only memorial to tell the stories of all women who have served our nation.


Join us at the Military Women’s Memorial March 3rd at 2:00 PM as we kick-off March with Me Women’s History Month 2024 with “Honoring Her Voice,” a special musical performance by The U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” chamber players. Arranged specially for Women’s History Month, the performance will showcase a wide variety of styles and pieces by living female composers. The event promises to have something for everyone – folk-tunes, Latin American, Afro-Cuban, contemporary classical composers and more. In keeping with Women’s History Month and “Honoring Her Voice,” the ensemble is composed primarily of female musicians and includes vocals, woodwinds, brass, and strings. It is a privilege to welcome these world-class musicians to the Military Women’s Memorial for this special Women’s History Month event.

*Guests are encouraged to arrive early for a 1:00 PM screening of “The Hello Girls” documentary (30 minutes).

Following the concert, guests are invited to join us for our March With Me Open House where they can enjoy viewing seldom seen artifacts from the Memorial archive, including an original sketch by Norman Rockwell, watch films about women in the military in the Vaught Center, register their stories of military service, and Adopt A Woman Veteran.

March, National Women’s History Month, is just around the corner. For 31 days, the nation will be purposefully celebrating the contributions and accomplishments of women. 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 challenge, women persevered and continued to step up – they just wanted to serve. Those trailblazers from across the decades made it possible for women today to serve in America’s Armed Forces at every level and in every job.

At MWM for Women’s History Month 2024, we are encouraging everyone to “March With Me” (MWM) – an obvious play on the Memorial’s abbreviation (MWM), as well as on the word “March” ― the month and the activity in which every military woman, past and present, has participated. We’re asking you – our members and supporters – to build and strengthen a nationwide community around America’s military women by “marching” with MWM throughout the month by collecting and telling women’s stories of service to the nation. Our goal is to celebrate all military women’s service and tell their stories, giving them the recognition they deserve. On March 3rd, we will kick off “March With Me” at the Memorial and we hope you will join us.
