Women’s History Month is celebrated each year in March with a national theme. The theme this year is “Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment” which highlights women's struggle for equal access to education and educational programs.
St. Mary’s University is celebrating Women’s History Month by offering a slate of great programs. Program information is available on the university's Women’s History Month site. Most programs are open to everyone.
The Blume Library is also celebrating Women’s History Month with a library book display and related research guide on Women’s History Month. I invite you to stop by the library to check out books on the display and use the Women’s History Month LibGuide to find more books, ebooks, films, databases, and other sources to research women’s history. While you are here, take a look at the current art display (Main, 2nd floor) entitled “Four Women by Women” that shows several wonderful works of art by local women artists.
