March is Women's History Month

Take a look at some of the Library's great resources  about, by, and for amazing women:

Follow CCC Library's board Women's History on Pinterest.

This Flickr set from the Library of Congress has some amazing photographs - including these gems...

Also take a look at History Pin, which includes several collections from National Archives: Women's Suffrage, Famous Women, Women in the Military, and Women at Work:

And I stumbled across this comic book treasure: Wonder Woman ran a back-up series called Wonder Women of History featuring real-life female superheroes like Sojourner Truth, Emma Willard, and Marie Curie.
