BDC Celebrates National Women's History Month

March is National Women's History Month. Each year National Women's History Month employs a unifying theme and recognizes national honorees whose work and lives testify to that theme. The theme for 2015, "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives," presents the opportunity to weave women’s stories – individually and collectively – into the essential fabric of our nation’s history. The nine honorees have each written Caucasian, African-American, Native American, Latina, and Chinese-American women back into the fabric of our nation's history. Learn more at More...
