Virtual Displays: Women's History Month '23

This guide showcases eBook versions of physical displays at the Fr. Leonard Alvey Library.

The National Women's History Alliance, which lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women's History Month in 1981, has selected this year's theme to be "Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories." This means that a special focus will be given to "encourage recognition of women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more. The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade".
