Each March is set aside to focus on women's history because women's parts in historical events are often ignored or downplayed in traditional history books and courses. This is in part because women have been excluded from "important" roles such as heads of state, military leaders, academia and many religious positions.

Histories tend to focus on what people in these positions of public power do or do not do. Histories that focus on women often focus on their roles in more private spheres -- home, schools, child rearing, or their influence over more powerful men. Of course, this focus on men's roles and power narrows our historical narrative to only half of humanity, so it makes sense for us to take time to intentionally tell women's part in the long story of ourselves.
