Celebrating Women's History Month

Dear Prince Georgians:

Yesterday officially marked the start of Women’s History Month. The United States has celebrated Women’s History Month during the month of March since 1987 to honor the extraordinary achievements of women, and to promote the many contributions women have made to grow and strengthen our County and nation.

This year’s national theme for Women’s History Month is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” which serves as both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.

Women’s History Month serves as a time for us to reflect on the contributions of women to our society. Women have been advocates and leaders for many generations, and we encourage Prince Georgians to take this opportunity to recognize and honor women in our own communities. We are Prince George’s Proud that our County has so many women working and leading in various ways, including in our County Government, and we want to honor all those who have made a positive impact on our lives and in our communities.

Throughout this month, Prince George’s County will celebrate Women’s History Month through a number of events, programs, and activities that honor trailblazing women in our past and present. We encourage you to stay tuned for more information on future events, including our Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon, where we will recognize women in County Government and the community who are making the County an even better place to live, work and play. We will also have a new initiative this year to honor women who have served our community and nation, and we look forward to sharing details about that later this month.

However you choose to celebrate Women’s History Month, let’s all remember to recognize and thank the outstanding women in our lives and our communities.

Yours in service,

Angela Alsobrooks

Prince George’s County Executive
