This guide includes information about the Women's History Month observances at St. Mary's University. These events occur every March. The guide also includes tips to finding research materials on women's studies topics.
I encourage you to visit the Blume Library, check out materials, and use tools on this guide to learn more about the women's studies and Women's History Month.
"By 1986, 14 states had already declared March as Women's History Month. This momentum and state-by-state action was used as the rational to lobby Congress to declare the entire month of March 1987 as National Women's History Month. In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women's History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women."
