Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society.

We have observed these gifts in the United States since March, 1987.

LMI March for Women

Across Honduras, countless women rise above adversity to become prominent thinkers, ethical leaders, and impactful changemakers. Join us for the LMI March for Women, a monthlong event celebrating women taking strides to transform Honduras and the world. Coinciding with Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, this initiative is a chance to learn more about the groundbreaking contributions of women and how we can continue moving #forwardtogether.
