Copyright Alliance Celebrates Women’s History Month 2022

From March 1 to March 31, 2022, the Copyright Alliance is proud to join so many outstanding organizations in celebrating Women’s History Month 2022—including the Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Gallery of Art, the National Park Service, the Smithsonian, and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (and many more!)

This year’s theme is Break the Bias, and is “dedicated to honoring women, shining a light on their current societal contributions and celebrating the many important roles women have played throughout American history.”

Focused on celebrating diversity amongst women and their accomplishments, on February 28, 2022, the White House issued a proclamation regarding Women’s History Month 2022, noting that “Every March, Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to honor the generations of trailblazing women and girls who have built our Nation, shaped our progress, and strengthened our character as a people. Throughout our history, despite hardship, exclusion, and discrimination, women have strived and sacrificed for equity and equality in communities across the country. Generations of Native American women were stewards of the land and continue to lead the fight for climate justice. Black women fought to end slavery, advocate for civil rights, and pass the Voting Rights Act…Standing on the shoulders of the heroines who came before them, today’s women and girls continue to carry forward the mission of ensuring our daughters have the same opportunities as our sons…LGBTQI+ women and girls are leading the fight for justice, opportunity, and equality—especially for the transgender community. Women and girls continue to lead groundbreaking civil rights movements for social justice and freedom, so that everyone can realize the full promise of America.”
