March is National Women’s History Month

This month, Chesnutt Library is featuring two Women’s History Month displays.

The first display highlights the 2013 National Women’s History Month theme, Women Inspiring Innovation through Imagination. (Read the National Women’s History Project blog.) This display features women who have used their intelligence, imagination, sense of wonder, and tenacity to make extraordinary contributions to the STEM fields.

The second display highlights 100 Years of Women Being Awesome, with a focus on North Carolina women.
