March is National Women's History Month!

Rod Howe

2018: Theme - "Nevertheless She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women." In 1987 the US Congress designated March as National Women's History Month. Each year there is a special theme and women whose lives exemplify that theme are selected as National Honorees.  

The 2018 National Women's History theme presents the opportunity to honor women who have shaped America's history and its future through their tireless commitment to ending discrimination against women and girls. The theme embodies women working together with strength, tenacity and courage to overcome obstacles and achieve joyful accomplishments.

Last year we hosted a bus tour to the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY. Follow their progress in moving the Hall to the 1844 Seneca Knitting Mill here.

Finally, if Tompkins County had its own Women's Hall of Fame let us know who you think should be honored and why (using the 2018 theme for National Women's History Month).
