Please join the SJSU iSchool in celebrating Women’s History Month 2024 as we honor the achievements of Women in Library Advocacy! 

Like many other historical heritage months, Women’s History Month began as a week-long celebration on March 7, 1982. Five years later, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Public Law 100-9, officially designating March as Women’s History Month. Since then, the President of the United States has issued annual proclamations and the National Women’s History Alliance has organized themes commemorating women’s history (source: Women’s History Month). This year’s national theme is “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion” (source: National Women’s History Alliance).

Join us on Wednesday, March 27, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pacific Time, for our EDI symposium, “Women in Library Advocacy,” to hear our speakers talk about their experiences working in the field of Library and Information Science.
