March 8, 2019 is International Women’s Day. It is a day when we celebrate all that women have accomplished and is an important day for the women’s rights movement. The 2019 campaign theme is balance, specifically gender balance, and people are encouraged to take a picture facing the camera with arms bent, palms facing up and posting it to the hashtag #BalanceforBetter.
The Library has many books on the women’s movement. Here are a few that can help you celebrate International Women’s Day.
