Women's History Month is an opportunity to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March, corresponding with International Women's Day on March 8. This year’s theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote” aimed at honoring the women who fought to win voting rights for women and those who continue to fight for the voting rights of others.
In honor of Women’s History Month 2020, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will highlight the importance of the strong and courageous women who work for the agency, celebrating their contributions, accomplishments and commitment to equality in law enforcement.
In Their Own Words
Why did they choose a career in law enforcement? What motivates them? Who in their personal and professional life inspires them? What does Women’s History Month mean to them? As ICE celebrates Women’s History Month, select women of the agency shared their personal stories of their journey to working in law enforcement.
