Overview of Women’s History Month
Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
 Lidia Nesterova 
  "My works are about a character or a hero and a story behind them. A viewer does not have to know the story. These stories exist in my imagination and inspire me to make the paintings. The implementation of these ideas take different forms and techniques."

Lidia Nesterova came to the United States from the Soviet Union in 1991 just before it collapsed. She studied at the Surikov Art Academy in Moscow and continued her studies in the US, receiving an MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. There she was influenced by her professors Martha Rosler and Philip Orenstein.
Along with her art, Lidia has done illustrations for The New Yorker magazine and worked as an artist-assistant in Jeff Koons' Studio. Lidia has works in private collections around the world.
