For generations, American women have helped build our great Nation through their leadership as writers, teachers, artists, politicians, doctors, and scientists, and in other professions. As mothers, daughters, and sisters, women have supported and strengthened American families and communities. Women are at the forefront of entrepreneurship in America, creating millions of new jobs and helping to build our Nation’s economic prosperity. We celebrate those who have broken down barriers for women, such as Jacqueline Cochran, who was the founder and director of the Women’s Air Force Service Pilots during World War II and the first woman to break the sound barrier. Gerty Theresa Radnitz Cori was the first American woman to receive a Nobel Prize in the sciences, and her research significantly advanced the treatment of diabetes. In 1926, Olympic Gold Medalist Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel. Marian Anderson, a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, opened doors in music as the first African American to perform with the New York Metropolitan Opera. Juliette Gordon Low encouraged community service and the physical, mental, and spiritual development of America’s young women as founder of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. As we work to advance freedom and peace and fight the war on terror, American women in uniform are serving at posts at home and across the world, taking great risks as they make our Nation more secure. As we commemorate Women’s History Month, I encourage all Americans to celebrate the extraordinary contributions and accomplishments of American women and to continue our progress in making our society more prosperous, just, and equal. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 2005 as Women’s History Month. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that honor the history, accomplishments, and contributions of American women.

Women's History Month, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Women's History Month, we celebrate the 
                achievements of our Nation's women. For generations, 
                American women have helped build our great Nation 
                through their leadership as writers, teachers, artists, 
                politicians, doctors, and scientists, and in other 
                professions. As mothers, daughters, and sisters, women 
                have supported and strengthened American families and 
                communities. Women are at the forefront of 
                entrepreneurship in America, creating millions of new 
                jobs and helping to build our Nation's economic 
                prosperity.

                We celebrate those who have broken down barriers for 
                women, such as Jacqueline Cochran, who was the founder 
                and director of the Women's Air Force Service Pilots 
                during World War II and the first woman to break the 
                sound barrier. Gerty Theresa Radnitz Cori was the first 
                American woman to receive a Nobel Prize in the 
                sciences, and her research significantly advanced the 
                treatment of diabetes. In 1926, Olympic Gold Medalist 
                Gertrude Ederle became the first woman to swim the 
                English Channel. Marian Anderson, a Presidential Medal 
                of Freedom recipient, opened doors in music as the 
                first African American to perform with the New York 
                Metropolitan Opera. Juliette Gordon Low encouraged 
                community service and the physical, mental, and 
                spiritual development of America's young women as 
                founder of the Girl Scouts of the United States of 
                America. As we work to advance freedom and peace and 
                fight the war on terror, American women in uniform are 
                serving at posts at home and across the world, taking 
                great risks as they make our Nation more secure.

                As we commemorate Women's History Month, I encourage 
                all Americans to celebrate the extraordinary 
                contributions and accomplishments of American women and 
                to continue our progress in making our society more 
                prosperous, just, and equal.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim March 2005 as Women's 
                History Month. I call upon the people of the United 
                States to observe this month with appropriate programs, 
                ceremonies, and activities that honor the history, 
                accomplishments, and contributions of American women.
