International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month

To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8th), the Tyler libraries have prepared displays to honor the women who have blazed a path for us all.  In addition this day of homage, the entire month of March is Women’s History Month!  This month is meant as a “tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society” (Library of Congress, 2016). Women’s History Week in 1981, but evolved into a month long celebration in 1987.

We all know a strong, courageous, intelligent, caring, and empowering woman that has positively affected our lives.  Honor these important women in your lives by learning more about the contributions of various women through activism, art, education, writing, and much more.
