March is Women’s History Month in the United States—a time to celebrate 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, celebrate and honor 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.
