Happy Women's History Month!
To kick off our month-long campaign bringing light to women's contributions to culture and society in Germany, we feature Angela Merkel. Of course we had to start off with Frau Merkel! She is possibly one of the most famous and influential German women today. Frau Merkel has served as the Chancellor of Germany for the past 15 years. She will step down later this year, marking the end of an era.

In observance of International Women's Day on Monday, March 8, 2021, the DAAD New York office will be closed.
