Mayor Mironov and each of the women elected officials offered comments recognizing the importance of Women’s History Month and women being involved in government and public service and their own experiences.
The Mayoral Proclamation issued by Mayor Mironov states, “the contributions made by women to our civic, political and cultural life throughout the history of the United States, the State of New Jersey and the Township of East Windsor are noteworthy and have benefited all of us. Women have made important changes in areas including social reform, women’s equality, health care reform, education reform, archaeology and anthropology, business and politics.”
Mayor Mironov spoke about “the importance of recognizing and applauding the distinguished and valuable contributions made by women today and throughout our history.” She noted the contributions of all of the elected women present, “as public officials who have themselves been great models of women who have helped make a difference and lead the way for other women who are interested in public service.” Mayor Mironov added, “Women have served and played a valuable role in so many spheres in our communities and history, whether it be in politics, science, the arts, sports, healthcare or education. We have a great opportunity in our state and our communities to build upon this record and commit to making a difference in the world and lifting up and encouraging other women so they as well can contribute in their own ways.”
Women’s History Month had its origins in 1980 as a national celebration when President Carter proclaimed the week of March 8, 1980 “Women’s History Week.” By 1987, “Women’s History Week” had become “Women’s History Month,” highlighting women’s history as an essential and indispensable heritage that is crucial to understanding the true history of our country and the need for full equality under the law for all.
