Joint Base San Antonio members are encouraged to celebrate Women’s History Month, which is observed annually during the month of March, when the U.S. Congress passed Public Law 100-9 in 1987, designating March as Women’s History Month.  

“Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” is this year’s theme, as designated by the National Women’s History Alliance, and emphasizes tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also recognizing the countless ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history. 

Likewise, our history has many examples of the unfailing bravery and grit of women in America, particularly in times of crisis and emergency.  Women served our Nation during World War II, led organizing and litigation efforts during the Civil Rights movement, and represented the United States on the global stage in the fight for human rights, peace, and security.     

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Joint Base San Antonio is displaying WHM posters across Joint Base San Antonio.  WHM posters will be displayed at JBSA Military and Family Readiness Centers as well as JBSA libraries.

Visitors to these locations are encouraged to follow COVID-19 health and safety measures, including practicing physical distancing.
