Valiant Women and the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced

                   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 2021 is Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced. 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 Library will host virtual programs and provide resources to honor these contributions and provide enriching opportunities to explore women's issues of the past, present and future.
