 The APWU honors the contributions of American women in shaping our nation in March, during Women’s History Month. "We celebrate the achievements of every woman who has supported organized labor and the progressive movement for social change," said APWU President Mark Dimondstein, “Every day, women make significant contributions to the APWU. We urge all female union members to join their ranks and get involved.”

The APWU National Executive Board adopted a proclamation to honor the women of the APWU throughout March, in celebration of Women's History Month. It recognizes the “unique and powerful role” women have played in the APWU and in society.
