The GoFastGirls (GFG) community is proudly celebrating Women's History Month. Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8 as National Women’s History Week. The U.S. Congress followed suit the next year, passing a resolution establishing a national celebration. Six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand the event to the entire month of March.
Every year, the National Women’s History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women's History Month. The 2022 theme is "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope." This theme is "both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history."
Why Do We Celebrate Women’s History Month?
Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. From Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks, the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.
The actual celebration of Women’s History Month grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history and society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978.
GFG and Women’s History Month
Here at GFG, we celebrate Women's History Month by showcasing the reasons why increasing and encouraging girls to play and stay in athletics and sports is crucial to the future.
GoFastGirls provides a platform to support and honor girls that have an interest in succeeding and pushing the limits in motorsports and the action sports world. GFG brings together like-minded women of all ages. GFG can't be tamed.
Our team knows that by empowering girls to become leaders in society, the world will change. When women and girls lead, the world becomes a better place. GFG is the missing link in the motorsports and action sports world and a community to support young girls and women who are passionate and interested in their sport. GFG was created to support that passion whether it be in motorsports, action sports or everyday life.
