Women's History Month 2017

Since 1987, March has been designated as Women’s History Month. What began as a day of recognition later turned into a week, and eventually, thanks to work of many women across the nation and the National Women’s History Project, women finally received the full month of recognition we deserve to celebrate the accomplishments of those who paved the way before us and to reflect on where we will go next.
