There shall never be another season of silence until women have the same rights men have on this green earth.Susan B. Anthony
March is Women’s History Month in the United States—a time to honor the many contributions women have made in American History. The theme of this year’s Women’s History Month is “Valiant Women of the Vote,” in honor of the work done by women in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries to ensure the ability of all women to vote.
Throughout March, we in St. Louis have many opportunities to learn about, honor and celebrate the many women who’ve played central roles in U.S. history with events at libraries, museums and other venues in our region. Check back here each Monday this month for a list of those events for the coming week.
