                            JOINT RESOLUTION

    Designating March 1993 and March 1994 both as ``Women's History 

Whereas American women of every race, class, and ethnic background have made 
        historic contributions to the growth and strength of our Nation in 
        countless recorded and unrecorded ways;
Whereas American women have played and continue to play a critical economic, 
        cultural, and social role in every sphere of the life of the Nation by 
        constituting a significant portion of the labor force working inside and 
        outside of the home;
Whereas American women have played a unique role throughout the history of the 
        Nation by providing the majority of the volunteer labor force of the 
Whereas American women were particularly important in the establishment of early 
        charitable, philanthropic, and cultural institutions in our Nation;
Whereas American women of every race, class, and ethnic background served as 
        early leaders in the forefront of every major progressive social change 
Whereas American women have been leaders not only in securing their own rights 
        of suffrage and equal opportunity, but also in the abolitionist 
        movement, the emancipation movement, the industrial labor movement, the 
        civil rights movement, and other movements, especially the peace 
        movement, which create a more fair and just society for all; and
Whereas despite these contributions, the role of American women in history has 
        been consistently overlooked and undervalued in the literature, 
        teaching, and study of American history: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That March 1993 and March 1994 
are designated both as ``Women's History Month'', and the President is 
authorized and requested to issue a proclamation call- ing upon the 
people of the United States to observe that month with appropriate 
programs, ceremonies, and activities.
