Women's History Month
March is dedicated to bringing awareness and recognizing the importance of women's history in relation to the story of the United States. In the US, Women's History Month traces its roots to the original International Women's Day (March 8) in 1911. It grew into Women's History Week in 1980, and Congress passed a Joint Resolution declaring March to be Women's History Month in 1987.

You can learn more about the historical contributions to American society with a number of great resources and materials available from affiliate libraries in Pinal County. You can see some of the library materials PCLD libraries carry HERE.

More information on Women's History Month can be found at Women'
