King County proclaims March 'Women’s History Month”

With a nod to the theme for this year’s celebration, the Metropolitan King County Council has declared the month of March Women’s History Month in King County and encouraged county residents to participate in events and learn more about the significant role women have played throughout our history.

“King County has been fortunate enough to cultivate many homegrown woman leaders,” said Council Vice Chair and co-sponsor Jane Hague. “Women’s History Month gives us an opportunity to recognize these leaders and explore how women have played a role in shaping our society.”

The theme for the 2014 celebration, “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment” honors the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women, recognizes the challenges women have overcome, honors their historic achievements, and encourages the celebration of women as role models for everyone.

“Women’s History Month calls attention to the many contributions women have made in King County,” said Councilman Reagan Dunn. “It is a privilege to honor the many accomplishments of women in our county and across this nation.”
