Executive Constantine’s proclamation recognizes March as Women’s History Month

In recognition of the 41st year of Women’s History Month, King County Executive Dow Constantine has proclaimed March 2021 to be Women’s History Month. The proclamation states “Whereas Women’s History Month has been celebrated in the U.S. since 1980 – and the 2021 theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced” and “even after many women received suffrage through the 19th Amendment in 1920, many other women and groups were still denied the franchise on the basis of race and gender,” Executive Constantine encourages all King County residents to honor the “historic and central roles that women of every race, class, and ethnic background hold every day that are essential to the progress of our County and nation.”
