Women’s History Month 2021

This month, we commemorate and celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments of women and honor the collective history that has been made by those who have sought relentlessly to bridge the chasm between the society we are and the one we aspire to be. As we reflect on the pervasive inequalities and inequities that continue to plague our society, we acknowledge the burdens of those who led the fight for women’s suffrage, education equality, economic and social justice, and the unrelenting quest to break the chains of patriarchy.  We stand proudly with those in our City and our sector who now continue on this same, complicated path to liberation.

This Women’s History Month – and every month – we seek to share stories too often untold about the extraordinary leadership, bravery, and sacrifice of women – especially women of color and LGBTQ women.  The following citywide events are free to the public (in order by date):
