The National Women’s History Project celebrates its silver anniversary this year, and Women’s History Month will begin March 1, a tradition originating from grassroots efforts in the 1970s to introduce women’s history into public education. In the 1980s, a nonprofit organization, the National Women’s History Project, successfully petitioned Congress to recognize the entire month of March as a time for the national celebration of women’s history.
Molly Murphy MacGregor, executive director and co-founder
of the National Women’s History Project, is scheduled to be
the keynote speaker at the 20th annual Women’s History Month
lunch, sponsored by the Bloomington Commission on the Status
of Women, on Wednesday, March 9, at 11:30 a.m. at the Bloomington
Convention Center. The IUB Office for Women’s Affairs is a
co-sponsor. For information, call 812-349-3471. And check
the IU Events Calendar for other opportunities on the campuses
of Indiana University to celebrate Women’s History Month.
