Realizing just how much women have contributed to the nation’s history, the entire month of March is now deemed “National Women’s History Month.” Happily, there are plenty of places in Connecticut celebrating women this month with events, activities, art and lectures.
Here are some events in Connecticut that are perfect ways to show our veterans how much we appreciate them.
Women’s History Month (March) is a time to celebrate the contributions, bravery, suffrage and historic fight that women have endured across the centuries. Connecticut is rich in history and women’s history is no exception.

It’s time to explore women’s history in Connecticut.

Here are a few ways to celebrate and honor this heritage.
