Women's History Month 2020

Women's History Month is an occasion to recognize the extraordinary contributions and achievements of women throughout our nation’s history. Women have played key roles in our nation’s efforts to reduce poverty and promote economic security. And as we remember the past, we also honor the persistence, determination, and commitment of today’s women who continue to fight for equality and champion social, racial, and economic justice.

During Women’s History Month, we will feature blogs written by staff members, highlight key CLASP efforts to uplift women, and introduce several partners and community activists who devote their lives to advancing equality for all—especially for women and girls.
