March is Women's History Month: "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives" is the theme for National Women's History Month 2015. The theme presents the opportunity to weave women's stories - individually and collectively - into the essential fabric our nation's history. Accounts of the lives of individual women are critically important because they reveal exceptionally strong role models who share a more expansive vision of what a woman can do. The stories of women's lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls and young women to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience. Knowing women's achievements challenges stereotypes and upends social assumptions about who women are and what women can accomplish today.

Contact the Branch Program VP, Tina Flannagan, for more information about any of these events.

The 2014 Honorees exemplify the theme,
