March is designated Women’s History Month by Presidential proclamation every year. The month is set aside to honor women’s contributions in American history.
The National Women’s History Alliance (NWHA) selects and publishes the yearly theme. The theme for Women's History Month in 2021 captures the spirit of these challenging times. Since many of the women's suffrage centennial celebrations originally scheduled for 2020 were curtailed, the NWHA is extending the annual theme for 2021 to "Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.” A victory as important as women winning the right to vote deserves an extended celebration. For that reason, NWHA is leading the drive to celebrate women’s historic achievement throughout 2021.
Preston Library owns many books about “votes for women” and suffrage and the individuals who fought for the right for women to vote. Below are books (print and online) and streaming video that you can “check out”:
