Women's History Month Display

March marks the annual observation of Women's History Month, where we celebrate women's contributions to society, culture and history. The United States has observed Women's History Month since 1987, with this year's theme being "Our History is Our Strength." Click on the image below for the Women's History digital collection at the Library of Congress:

March 8th, 2011 also marks the centennial celebration of International Women's Day! From the website:
"International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday."
Stop by the library to see our display full of resources on influential women, the history of Women's Rights, and women throughout history! Click here to visit Gale's Women's History page and see a timeline of women throughout history (highly recommended!), landmark court cases, and take the quiz to test your knowledge!
