Women’s History Month Displays

Women’s History Month Displays

In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, which is March 8, Hannon Library is currently presenting two displays that celebrate influential women in history. The display on the first floor was curated by the library’s Government Publications Department and highlights women’s wartime contributions. The display includes documents such as A History of the Women Marines 1946 – 1977, and The U.S. Army and World War II.
