Women make up nearly 45% of the workforce of the City and County of San Francisco holding positions in every field in City government from healthcare workers to laborers to analysts to custodians to police officers. Women are an integral and irreplaceable part of the fabric that keeps San Francisco running, safe, and healthy day in and day out.
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. This year's Women's History Month theme is “women providing healing, promoting hope.” This theme is a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic. Check out the San Francisco Department of Public Health's Twitter feed @SF_DPH for a series of spotlights on women city healthcare workers and their perseverance through the past two years of pandemic response.
