Women’s History Month

March was a month full of wonderful releases talking about the great women who help shape our world. We read about women in all sorts of industries including music, sports, and gaming. Let’s give a round of applause to all the amazing women out there!

More than 200 press releases that mentioned "International Women’s Day" and/or "Women’s History Month" were sent out in March and April. Here are some of the great releases that came out regarding this month-long celebration:   

Workforce Updates

Finding work can be one of the hardest things a person has to do and even when they do find a job, it can sometimes not feel like the right fit. The good news is nobody is alone in this struggle. During the past two months, we saw a lot of releases talking about issues involving the workforce and uplifting the individuals and groups that help make it great.

Earth Month Recap

We only have one planet and with April being Earth Month (and Earth Day recognized on April 22), companies across industries shared announcements to remind us of just that. Between sharing the ways organizations were celebrating, ways we can help protect the environment, and how we can keep ourselves safe from natural disasters, there was a lot of great content focused on a better future for us and the planet.

In March and April, PR Newswire distributed 232 press releases that mentioned either "Earth Day" or "Earth Month."

Looking Ahead

While we may be putting Women’s History Month and Earth Month behind us, companies across industries continue their work to respect the planet and the women who are a part of what makes it great. With Mother’s Day coming up in May, we'll see press releases celebrating the motherly figures in our lives. May is also Mental Health Awareness Month, so we can be sure to see many companies doing their part to help support that cause.

Furthermore, we have Pride Month and Father’s Day to look forward to in June, so we're expecting to see news announcements regarding the LGBTQIA+ and fatherly figures in our lives.
