Women’s History Month celebrated
Old Sacramento commemorates Women’s History Month on Saturday with a “living history event” that will take place throughout the historic district from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Men and women dressed in 19th-century attire demonstate how men’s and especially women’s fashion changed, decade by decade, from the 1850s through the 1880s.
Behind the News: Women’s History Month dates back to 1981, when Congress identified a week in March as Women’s History Week. But since 1995, presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.
