Women’s History Month is a worldwide celebration of the contributions women have made throughout history. Often pitted against social conventions and legal obstacles, women have created a legacy that expands the frontiers of possibility for generations to come. It’s a perfect time to hear from female experts in a number of fields and to celebrate the lives of historic women and womanhood in general.

Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. This year’s theme, “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment,” honors the extraordinary and often unrecognized determination and tenacity of women.

Highlights of celebrations in Massachusetts include:

Greater Boston

Northern Massachusetts

Western Massachusetts
