Celebrating Women’s History Month

In honor of Women’s History Month, we curated a special collection of Library resources for our community. Explore the links below to examine diverse articles, books, images, films, and activities which spotlight women’s history across the globe.

The National Women’s History Alliance names the celebration’s 2024 theme, “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion,” and this month we celebrate female leadership that promote equality and justice both institutionally and socially. Join us as we honor the resilience and creativity of women who have impacted the expansion of our collective consciousness.
