In March, the Government Information Department (Lower Level SW in the Merrill-Cazier Library) is celebrating Women’s History Month by highlighting several milestones for women from the famous march at Seneca Falls, New York in July 1848 to the Senate passing the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
The role of the women has evolved over the years through changing times. In the early years, they were on the sidelines taking care of their daily routines. But as battles came to the home front and wars began, they stepped up their game. They took on many roles that included a variety of hands-on training and skills. March is Women’s History Month to celebrate and embrace the footprints that women have endured, the legacy they have created and the lessons taught while paving the way for a better future for tomorrow. The possibilities are endless with the endurance and perseverance to move forward. Always remember Rosie the Riveter. ”WE CAN DO IT!”
