March is Women’s History Month. Here are some local events:

National Constitution Center: Throughout Women’s History Month, the Center recognizes extraordinary American women throughout the nation’s history. Celebrate Women’s History Month by viewing our newest exhibit, The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote. This exhibit traces the triumphs and struggles that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment, and features some of the many women who transformed constitutional history—including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, and Ida B. Wells—and allows visitors to better understand the long fight for women’s suffrage. Learn more about our programs.
