women's history month

National Women’s History Month 2016

Women are prevalent throughout history. Mentioned or unmentioned, they are there. They are engineers, soldiers, writers, waitresses, artists, musicians, ministers, housekeepers; teachers, sales clerks, doctors, police officers, lawyers, managers, librarians, fire fighters, professors, chefs, and homemakers. It is only right that women should be acknowledged and remembered when they achieve excellence. This is what Women's History Month is about. It is a time when we pause to reflect on women who have gone above and beyond - no matter what their profession is.

This year The National Women's History Project had chosen to focus on: "Honoring Women in Public Service and Government”.

Muntz Library will host events in honor of this very special month. More details on these events is forthcoming
