We celebrate Women's History Month each March in recognition of the important contributions women have made - and continue to make - in our country's history.
Women's History Month began in 1982, when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28, which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Learn more at womenshistorymonth.gov.

Visit Central Library from March 5 - April 2 to view the new exhibition, “Women’s Work: Then & Now,” commemorating both Arlington County’s 100th anniversary and the 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment.
Included in this exhibition are stories, photographs, letters and memorabilia, which spotlight individuals and groups of Arlington women dedicated to improving their community and the lives of others.
The exhibition is located in the lobby at Central Library, and is open to the public during Library hours.
