March is Women’s History Month. This year’s theme is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence.” Castleton has lots of events honoring women and women’s history during the month.
The image above is from the American Women’s History Initiative of the Smithsonian Institution. The Her Story project’s purpose is to “amplify women’s voices to honor the past, inform the present and inspire the future. The stories we tell deepen our understanding of women’s contributions to America and the world, showing how far women have advanced and how we as a country value equality and the contributions of all our citizens.” Take a look to learn more.
Lots of information resources on women’s history are compiled here: https://libguides.castleton.edu/womens_history
And, check out the display of books in the library during the month of March. (Click to see a list of books chosen for the display.)
There are lots of ways to learn more and honor the contributions of women!
