It's Still Women's History Month: Events To Attend

You are still in time to celebrate Women’s History Month. Who will you celebrate? Who would be worthy of highlighting as a woman who has contributed to history and society?  The Library of Congress paid tribute by curating a webinar of women in the armed forces and how to become part of the project in telling their stories. The National Gallery of Art in D.C. gave a lecture of Women in Hellenistic and Roman Athens focusing on visualizing female power and wealth. Countless of galleries around the city have highlighted this month in remembrance of women who have shaped our presence through their offering to history.
