Women's History Month

March 2020

     Women's History Month

Women's History Month is a time to celebrate women's historical and contemporary contributions to society and culture. The theme for 2020 is Valiant Women of the Vote. The theme honors "the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights for women, and for the women who continue to fight for the voting rights of others." (National Women's History Museum).

During the month of March, DC Public Libraries will host programs to honor these contributions and provide enriching opportunities to explore women's issues of the past, present and future.
