In celebration of Women's History Month, the University Libraries' Diversity Advancement Committee has created an exhibit guide to share books, films, databases, and other resources that represent a broad range of women's voices and stories across the U.S. and around the world. These resources celebrate their achievements as well as examine their struggles, both past and present. We invite you to explore these titles, most of which are held in the library’s collection, or are widely available on online platforms.
"Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week." Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as "Women’s History Week." In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month." Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, US presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month." These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields."
