Women’s History month is a very important observance as women fight for equal human rights. The celebration of Women’s History Month started locally in Santa Rosa, California. A partnership of women lobbied Congress and in 1987 March became the official month to honor all the amazing contributions of women around the world!
Holi, the Indian Festival of Colors, is also celebrated in NYC and LA this month. Skip buying a plane ticket and check out one of the events where you can enjoy tasty Indian food, meditate, dance, and splash color on each other!
