Business Women's Day
Date When Celebrated : September 22
Business Women's Day recognizes the value and contribution of women in the business world.
The roots of this special day go back to the late 1940s. While men were off fighting World War II, women filled the void in the workforce. The returning soldiers found the women eager to have their men return. But, many women were not anxious to return to traditional roles in the home. Since this time, women's role and contributions in the workforce have grown and evolved.
Ladies, have a Happy Business Women's Day!
Origin of Business Women's Day:
Hilary A. Bufton Jr. and three Kansas City business women founded the American Business Women's Association(ABWA) on September 22, 1949. The first Business Women's Day was celebrated in 1982.
