Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month! Celebrate by reading about women's rights and all the amazing women who have fought so hard over the years to win us these freedoms! From the early 1800's on up the the 1960's, women fought hard for simple things like the right to vote and equal pay. These are things that we take for granted as modern young women. But a hundred years ago? In 1911, women still did not have the right to vote and did not receive equal wages. Pick up a book and read about some of these amazing women.
