Women’s History Month commemorates the vital role of women in American history and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987. As we celebrate the month – and also International Women’s Day on March 8th – it’s an opportunity to reflect on the past year, the central role women have played in events that have shaped our lives, and history-making achievements including the election of America’s first female Vice President.
WPBS broadcasts more documentaries on American history than any other network and this March, we are pleased to present a special lineup telling the stories of women who have made immense contributions to society through the arts, media, sports and literature.
