Women's History is vast and important. Throughout history women have not been acknowledged and celebrated as leaders, thinkers, and world-changers nearly as often as deserved. In this guide, we'll focus primarily on major aspects of women's history in the United States and women in specific career fields.
This page specifically points to resources for exploring the history of women and organizations that work for women. JCTC's Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement has also created a webpage to highlight the virtual events and creative ways to celebrate Women History Month in March.
