Women's History Month

Celebrating Over Thirty Years of Women's History Month at Glendale College

MARCH 2020

Women's History Month at GCC

The National Women’s History Alliance selects and publishes the yearly theme. The 2020 Women’s History Month theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote.”  The theme honors "the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights for women, and for the women who continue to fight for the voting rights of others."


Volunteer to read to children at the Child Development Center during the month of March!

The Child Development Center will let you choose a children’s book that have female characters and you can read them to the kids.

You can come any day between 10-11 a.m. or 4-5 p.m.

Contact: to sign up!

Don't forget to check out the Women's History Month display at the GCC Library, courtesy of the students from the Feminist Society.
