Women's History Month 2022: Women's History Month, 2022

Resource guide for Women's History Month 2022

Two African American WWII Nurses' AidesThe theme for this year's Women's History Month is “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” in recognition of the caregivers, health care workers, and all the ways women have provided healing and hope for their communities throughout history. The resources selected on this guide are both general women's history and where possible in reference to this year's theme. Because of the current events in Ukraine we have also included a section on women in armed conflicts. In recognition of the fight for women's rights across the world there is also information about women in a global context.

Butte College's QRC (Queer Resource Center) and CCC (Culture and Community Center) have put together resources and information on Women's History Month. Check their site out for Butte related celebrations.
