Our March program will celebrate National Women's History Month, which acknowledges the vital role of women in American History. Palo Alto women have made innumerable contributions both to our community and to the world. Join us as several speakers share the history of some of Palo Alto's extraordinary women, including some well-known names and also some you might not know. We hope you will join us to listen to these inspiring stories of women who have shaped our city.

Women's History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982, as "Women's History Week" In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women's History Project, Congress designated the month of March 1987 as "Women's History Month." Since 1995, presidents have proclaimed the month of March as "Women's History Month."
