When Did Single Parents’ Day Begin?

The idea for Single Parents’ Day began back in 1984 with an article written by Janice Moglen, a divorced mother of two who hoped that Single Parents’ Day might one day gain the recognition many associate with both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. In collaboration with the organization Parents Without Partners, Moglen began to petition individual states to declare their own recognition of Single Parents’ Day.

It is believed that the day, March 21, was chosen to coincide with the inception of Parents Without Partners, which began 50 years ago, on March 21, 1957.
