Boston: March is Women’s History Month

~ As Women's History Month begins, the nation prepares to celebrate the often overlooked contributions of women to US history. What started as a weeklong effort has now evolved into a month-long observance, providing a platform for women of color to share their stories and experiences within this ongoing narrative.

The month of March is not only a time for reflection and celebration, but also an opportunity to raise awareness about important issues affecting women. With the change from winter to spring, there is often a surge in depression, making it crucial to highlight health and mental health resources that cater specifically to women's needs.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is dedicated to promoting education and events that celebrate Women's History Month. They have compiled a list of resources that offer support for both physical and mental well-being. Local city events and educational opportunities are also highlighted, including those organized by the Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement and the Boston Public Library.
