Celebrate Women’s History Month 2023

Women's History Month is a time to reflect on the often overlooked contributions of women, both historically and contemporarily. There is power in a woman's voice, and in women's voices collectively. Here are some great quotes to ponder:

  • "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less." - Marie Curie
  • “Where there is a woman, there is magic.” - Ntozake Shange
  • “A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.” - Melinda Gates
  • “I want every girl to know that her voice can change the world.” - Malala Yousafzai
  • “There is nothing stronger than a broken woman who has rebuilt herself.” - Hannah Gadsby
  • “What’s the greatest lesson a woman should learn? That since day one, she’s already had everything she needs within herself. It’s the world that convinced her she did not.” - Rupi Kaur
  • “Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women.” - Maya Angelou

To honor Women's History Month, we will be hosting Wendy Rouse, author of Public Faces, Secret Lives: the Queer History of the Women's Suffrage Movement. Join us via Zoom on March 7, 2023, at 7pm. Registration is required: https://sccl.bibliocommons.com/events/63dd89250470e64100b9e01e
