Celebrate Women’s History Month 2013

March 3rd, 2013 marks 100 years since suffragists marched on Washington.  The Equal Rights Amendment was introduced in Congress in 1923, and the first woman was appointed to a U.S. presidential cabinet in 1933. Fast forward to the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the first American woman in space in 1983, and the Family Leave Act in 1993—the same year women were allowed to fly into combat. And this year, the ban has been lifted on women in combat.

Women’s History and Heritage Month celebrates the contributions that women have made in all aspects of society. Learn more about their accomplishments with some of Albright College Library’s resources…
